The Last Bookstore invites you to meet Verity Speeks, author of the outrageous new political satire The First Lady Escapes: FLOTUS Flees the White House. Enjoy wine and conversation as you learn more about the novel that Jon Weiner, host of KPFK's "Trump Watch," calls: "Just what we need in these dark times: A hilarious and wildly imaginative story that is also strangely plausible--leading to the question, could it all be true?"

President Rex Funck is a lying old bully whose affairs have hurt his wife Natalia, a former model from Slovakia. Now he wants to get her pregnant so voters will see him as a macho stud and re-elect him. Natalia despises Funck too much to go through with it. With the help of Angel, her gay Mexican hairdresser and BFF, she secretly flees the White House. To take her place they leave Moon, a ballsy trans woman who impersonates FLOTUS at a drag-queen show. Natalia's suspenseful escape becomes a personal journey of self-awareness with unexpected twists and outrageous characters. Meanwhile, when the truth comes out about Moon at the White House, all hell breaks loose. In The First Lady Escapes: FLOTUS Flees the White House, Natalia proves herself a true American hero by saving her beloved adopted country from getting Funcked.

L.A. journalist Verity Speeks was compelled to write The First Lady Escapes: FLOTUS Flees the White House because of the outrage, frustration, and helplessness she has felt since November 8, 2016, when a meteor with a bad comb-over struck the earth and caused devastating consequences that continue to wreak havoc.
