Author Graham Moore’s Presidential Perks

Dealing with the spotlight from a famous mother or father can be drag.  Just ask Chelsea Clinton, Jackie Kucinich or Meghan McCain.  But as new novelist Graham Moore will tell you, having a political power parent also has its perks. While most authors receive a pat on the back after publishing their first book, Moore, the 29-year-old son of outgoing FLOTUS Chief of Staff Susan Sher, is being honored with a lineup of high-profile parties (two in the District alone).  Unfortunately for the fetes to follow, Moore’s first will be nearly impossible to top.

Hosted last night by Dr. Jill Biden and Susan Sher at the residence of the Vice President, an intimate group of  administration and media power players gathered to toast the first-time novelist and his book “The Sherlockian.” Trimmed out for the holidays, the glistening residence at One Observatory Circle welcomed a guest list that included Sec. Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, a bubbly and warm Justice Sonia Sotomayor , White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, Alan Greenspan and Ambassador Fujisaki of Japan to name just a few.

The fourth estate was represented by a number of faces from NBC – Andrea Mitchell, Norah O’Donnell with husband Geoff Tracy, Howard Fineman, Washington Bureau Chief Mark Whitaker and wife Alexis Gelber.  Glamour’s Linda Kramer Jenning, WaPo’s Amy Argetsinger, Huffington Post’s Sam Stein, SELF’s Marc Adelman, ABC News Washington Bureau Chief Robin Sproul, Tammy Haddad,  and Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times rounded out the media invitees. Author and journalist Christopher Hitchens, whose recent cancer diagnosis seemed to have little effect on his spirit, was also in attendance with his son and daughter who are visiting from London.

While joking that his publishers have been instructed to send all press clippings directly to his doting mother, Moore was interrupted by Vice President Joe Biden who walked down the steps of his home to surprise and congratulate the boyish new author.  How’s that for a first book party?

Moore’s next Washington book bash will be held at the home of Hilary Rosen on December 6, 2010.  Check out his book “The Sherlockian” here.
