Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright no longer jets off to foreign capitals as the country’s architect of foreign policy, but that doesn’t mean she’s not still in constant motion writing, teaching, starting a business, and spending time with grandchildren.

In a conversation with author representative and partner at Williams and Connolly LLP law firm Bob Barnett, Albright draws on her new book Hell and Other Destinations: A 21st Century Memoir to trace how she made the transition from Foggy Bottom into her current life. The Obama confidante says she doesn’t want to be “remembered” because she’s still here and has much more to do. In this lively and frank interview, learn what that might look like for someone who wants “every stage of my life to be more exciting than the last.”

Hell and Other Destinations (Harper) is available for sale.
