Historian Hazel Rowley’s groundbreaking new account of the marriage of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt is a ”dramatic and vivid narrative” that showcases how the couple successfully moved from a restrictive Victorian marriage to a true partnership, in spite of scandals. Her new book Franklin and Eleanor: An Extraordinary Marriage, is a masterful, engaging study which Pulitzer Prize-winner Jon Meacham says brings alive the President and his First Lady ”in all their humanity, complexity and greatness.” Rowley’s book is rich with insights and new information ”about a political marriage that rose above politics, and a partnership driven as much by idealism as ambition.” We invite you to join us for this surprising, brilliantly researched look into the lives of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt. Rowley’s earlier books include biographies of Richard Wright and and Jean-Paul Sartre.
