by James Rogan
WND Digital Edition
"And Then I Met ..." is a collection of humorous, adventurous and sometimes poignant boyhood stories told by former Congressman James Rogan of doing everything possible, short of breaking the law, to meet and get advice from many famous politicians, athletes and entertainment figures he met as a kid growing up in San Francisco. Through Rogan's diaries and photos, you'll meet and get rare behind-the-scenes glimpses of people like Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Billy Graham, Bob Hope, Jimmy Stewart, Hubert Humphrey, Barry Goldwater, Cary Grant, Willie Mays and dozens more. Rogan met everyone — from the last surviving witness of the massacre of General Custer to stars of "Gone With the Wind" and "The Wizard of Oz." The stories and photographs brim over in this delightful compilation.
"Rogan writes like a P.J. O'Rourke with a Capra-esque streak of political optimism, and this hilarious, crowd-pleasing memoir will probably make him a major conservative media celebrity." - Publisher's Weekly.
