CLEVELAND, Ohio- President Joe Biden's former senior speech writer, Jeff Nussbaum, will keynote a forum on speech writing hosted by the City Club of Cleveland on Fri, May 20 , an in person event. He will also do a book signing relative to his book titled " Undelivered: The Never-Heard Speeches that Would Have Rewritten History." Email with any questions.

The forum, which begins at noon following an 11:30an lunch and requires purchased tickets, is part of the Authors in Conversation series and is sponsored by the John P. Murphy Foundation through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.

Speeches have the power to educate, incite, and inspire. But for almost every delivered speech there exists an undelivered opposite. These "second speeches" provide a tantalizing, sometimes terrifying window into what could have been if not for changes of heart or momentous turns of events.

In Undelivered: The Never-Heard Speeches that Would Have Rewritten History, Nussbaum presents the most notable speeches that were never heard from Dwight Eisenhower's apology for a D-Day failure to Richard Nixon's refusal to resign the presidency, and even Hillary Clinton's acceptance for a 2016 victory—the latter never seen until now.

Jeff Nussbaum is an adjunct professor of public communication at American University in Washington, D.C.  and a partner in the speechwriting and strategy firm West Wing Writers. He has previously served as a speechwriter for Vice President Biden when he was vice president under president Barck Obama, and for  former vice president Al Gore, and Senate former Majority Leader Tom Daschle. More recently Nussbaum oversaw all speechwriting operations for the 2012 Democratic National Convention. In addition to his speechwriting experience, hewas the co-author and collaborator with James Carville on the 2003 bestseller

Join the City Club of Cleveland for this in person forum, a behind-the-scenes look at the power of speechwriting and what these second speeches can tell us about the past, and also inform our present.

After the forum, a book signing with Jeff Nussbaum will be available. Mac's Backs will be on site for book sales.
