Jonathan Franzen visits the White House

October 25, 2010 |  3:06 pm

ABC News reports that Jonathan Franzen was spotted leaving the White House Monday afternoon. The author said that his meeting with President Obama was "delightful."

In August, about 10 days before Franzen's novel "Freedom" went on sale, a vacationing President Obama got an advance copy at the Bunch of Grapes bookstore on Martha's Vineyard.
