APPEARANCE CANCELLED. Please watch for re-scheduling information. Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker is regarded as the leader of the global breast cancer movement. Her journey began with a promise to her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything possible to end the shame, pain, fear and hopelessness associated with the disease. In one generation, the organization she created that bears her sister's name has changed the world. Ambassador Brinker makes a special appearance here to talk about that in her wondrous new book, "Promise Me: How a Sister's Love Launched the Global Movement to End Breast Cancer." She has received numerous accolades for her work, and in 2009 President Barack Obama awarded her with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor. She is the former U.S. Ambassador to Hungary and served as the U.S. chief of Protocol in the second Bush administration. Georgia Center for the Book and Blue Elephant Book Shop invite you to join us at Agnes Scott College to celebrate Ambassador Brinker's work and the millions of lives it has touched forever.
