Read My Pins
Madeleine Albright, signed by author
Part illustrated memoir, part social history, “Read My Pins” provides an intimate look at Albright’s life through the brooches she wore. Her collection is both international and democratic–dime-store pins share pride of place with designer creations and family heirlooms. Included are the antique eagle purchased to celebrate Albright’s appointment as secretary of state, the zebra pin she wore when meeting Nelson Mandela, and the Valentine’s Day heart forged by Albright’s five-year-old daughter. “Read My Pins” features more than 200 photographs, along with compelling and often humorous stories about jewelry, global politics, and the life of one of America’s most accomplished and fascinating diplomats.
