Q&A with Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy
Nancy Gibbs is deputy managing editor at Time magazine and was named by the Chicago Tribune as one of the ten best magazine writers in the country. Michael Duffy is Time's Washington bureau chief. Their first book was The Preacher and The Presidents: Billy Graham in the White House.
Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy discussed The Presidents Club: Inside the World’s Most Exclusive Fraternity, their history of private and public relationships among modern American presidents dating back to Herbert Hoover. They described a townhouse purchased during the Nixon administration and located across from the White House that is used as an informal residence and meeting place for former presidents. The co-authors recounted instances of back channel communications between presidents, often from different political parties. They also described their research and writing duties for the book, and their early careers in journalism and influential teachers in their lives.
