Bob Levey, a prize-winning journalist who has covered the Washington scene since the Johnson Administration, will also be at the Mixer promoting his new book: LARRY FELDER, CANDIDATE. The novel is a story of a famous Washington newspaper columnist (Felder) who abandons journalism to run for Congress in Maryland’s Eighth District (Montgomery County). Larry’s path gets massively complicated by love, corruption, those pesky newspaper reporters and the unforeseen. But the good guys win in the end, and loyalty wins most of all.
