Presenter

Internationally acclaimed, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian Edmund Morris will discuss and sign his new book, Colonel Roosevelt, the last volume in his monumental trilogy on the great American President Theodore Roosevelt. Packed with more adventure, variety, drama, humor, and tragedy than a big novel, yet documented down to the smallest fact, Colonel Roosevelt recounts the last decade of an amazing life in American history. What other president has written forty books, hunted lions, founded a third political party, survived an assassin’s bullet, and explored an unknown river longer than the Rhine? Morris’ book is at once a definitive work of scholarship and a fascinating read.
