Event Description: A mayor’s inspirational story of a Midwest city that has become nothing less than a blueprint for the future of American renewal. Once described by The Washington Post as “the most interesting mayor you’ve never heard of,” Pete Buttigieg, the thirty-six-year-old Democratic mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has improbably emerged as one of the nation’s most visionary politicians. First elected in 2011, Buttigieg left a successful business career to move back to his hometown, previously tagged by Newsweek as a “dying city,” because the industrial Midwest beckoned as a challenge to the McKinsey-trained Harvard graduate. Whether meeting with city residents on middle-school basketball courts, reclaiming abandoned houses, confronting gun violence, or attracting high-tech industry, Buttigieg has transformed South Bend into a shining model of urban reinvention. While Washington reels with scandal, Shortest Way Home interweaves two once-unthinkable success stories: that of an Afghanistan veteran who came out and found love and acceptance, all while in office, and that of a Rust Belt city so thoroughly transformed that it shatters the way we view America’s so-called flyover country. Pete Buttigieg, born in Indiana in 1982, is currently serving his second term as mayor of South Bend. A dynamic national lecturer and TEDx speaker, as well as a Rhodes Scholar and Navy veteran, Buttigieg was educated at Harvard and Oxford. He and his husband, Chasten Glezman, live in South Bend, Indiana. Frank Bruni has been an Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times since June 2011. His previous jobs at The New York Times include writer-at-large for The New York Times Magazine (2009-2011), chief restaurant critic (2004-2009) and Rome bureau chief (2002-2004). A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in feature writing, he is the author of three bestselling books: Ambling into History, Born Round, and Where You Go Is Not Who You’ll Be. He lives in Manhattan.
