A Singular Woman: Writing the Life Story of Stanley Ann Dunham

May 8, 12:00pm - 1:15pm
Manoa Campus, Kuykendall 410 Add to Calendar

In the course of writing A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mother, award-winning author Janny Scott interviewed nearly two hundred friends, colleagues, and relatives of Stanley Ann Dunham, including both her son Barack Obama and daughter Maya Soetoro-Ng, and conducted extensive archival research, combing through boxes of personal and professional papers, letters, and photo albums to uncover the neglected story of the mother of the forty-fourth president of the United States. It is a story that takes Scott from Kansas and Washington state to Hawai‘i and Indonesia, as she explores how character is created and passed from parent to child, offering insight into how Obama’s path was established by his mother’s extraordinary faith in his gifts, and by her unconventional parenting.

Janny Scott, a longtime reporter for the New York Times, where she shared a Pulitzer Prize for national reporting in 2000, began her exploration of the life of Stanley Ann Dunham while covering the 2008 presidential campaign.
