EVENT OVERVIEW:  Jason Kander will be In Conversation with Steve Kraske, Host of Up To Date on KCUR / NPR 89.3 FM, about Jason's New Hardcover Invisible Storm: A Soldier's Memoir of Politics and PTSD on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, at 7:00 PM at Unity Temple on The Plaza, Sanctuary, 707 W 47th Street, Kansas City, Missouri 64112.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK INVISIBLE STORM:  From political wunderkind and former Army Intelligence Officer Jason Kander comes a haunting, powerful memoir about impossible choices, and how sometimes walking away from the chance of a lifetime can be the greatest decision of all.

In 2017, President Obama, in his final Oval Office interview, was asked who gave him hope for the future of the country, and Jason Kander was the first name he mentioned. Suddenly, Jason was a national figure. As observers assumed he was preparing a run for the Presidency, Jason announced a bid for Mayor of Kansas City instead and was headed for a landslide victory. But after 11 years battling PTSD from his service in Afghanistan, Jason was seized by depression and suicidal thoughts. He dropped out of the Mayor’s race and out of public life. And finally, he sought help.

In this brutally honest 2nd memoir, following his New York Times Bestselling Debut Outside the Wire, Jason Kander has written the book he himself needed in the most painful moments of his PTSD. In candid, in-the-moment detail, we see him struggle with undiagnosed illness during a presidential bid; witness his family buoy him through challenging treatment; and, giving hope to so many of us, see him heal.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Jason Kander is a former Army Captain who served in Afghanistan. He was Elected to the Missouri State Legislature in 2008 and as Missouri Secretary of State in 2012, making him the 1st millennial ever elected to statewide office. In 2016, while Donald Trump was winning Missouri by 19 points, Jason nearly unseated a Republican US Senator. In 2017, he founded Let America Vote, a national campaign against voter suppression. His memoir, Outside the Wire, became a New York Times Bestseller the following year. Jason is the President of the Veterans Community Project, a national nonprofit organization, and the host of Majority 54, one of the nation’s most popular political podcasts. He lives in Kansas City with his wife Diana, their son True, and their daughter Bella.
