If you've been dying to ask some West Wing questions about the Clinton or Obama administrations, come to Scarsdale on Thursday, June 7.

Jennifer Palmieri, 51, a White House and Democratic Party insider, will be talking about her new book, "Dear Madam President, An Open Letter to Women Who Will Rule the World," which has been getting mixed reviews in the mainstream media.

Here are some recent national articles about her book, by NPR , as well as CBS News.

The Mississippi native also led John Edwards' 2004 campaign for president -- before he became John Kerry's running-mate.

The Scarsdale Adult School is hosting "An Evening with Jennifer Palmieri in Conversation with Chris Riback"

The hour-long author talk begins at 7:30 p.m. at Scarsdale Middle School and will conclude with a book signing.

The cost is $25 for standard admission; and $40 for standard admission and a hardcover copy of Palmieri's book.

Students who are 18 and under can get in for free.

According to Riback, "Palmieri considers it all – history, gender, the campaign, Donald Trump – and offers advice to the girls and women who, as she puts it, will run the world.” He adds, “The book is incredibly reflective — In a time of #MeToo and even #EnoughisEnough, the result is a really thoughtful story that captures our times and provides clear insights about the future.”

Palmieri is former director of communications for the 2016 presidential campaign of Chappaqua's Hillary Clinton.

She served as White House communications director for President Barack Obama. Before her service at the White House, she served as the president of the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

Earlier, Palmieri was the National Press Secretary for the 2004 John Edwards presidential campaign and for the Democratic National Committee in 2002.

Palmieri also served as a Deputy White House Press Secretary, Special Assistant to White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta and Deputy Director of Scheduling and Advance in the Clinton White House.
