Join Duquesne University School of Law and Honors College in welcoming Sheila Tate, the Duquesne alumna who served as press secretary to First Lady Nancy Reagan and co-founded the Washington, D.C., area public relations and government relations firm Powell Tate. Tate will discuss her new book, Lady In Red: An Intimate Portrait of Nancy Reagan, at a special event at Duquesne on Thursday, April 26, 2018.

In Lady in Red, Tate provides behind-the-scenes stories and iconic images of Reagan, for whom she served as press secretary from 1981-1985. She also shares a rare look into the life of the president's wife, from travels as First Lady to her deep influence in the Reagan White House.

A reception for all guests will follow the event at 5 p.m. in the law school’s 4th Floor Faculty Lounge, during which Tate’s book will be available for purchase (at the special price of $25) and signing by the author. The Duquesne program marks Tate’s only public event in Pittsburgh.

Students from the Honors College, as well as pre-law and honors students from area colleges and universities, will also have a chance to meet Tate during a private luncheon on April 26.
