September 13 - VIRTUAL - Mary Calvi on the Hidden History of Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Roosevelt is known as a politician, conservationist and president of the United States, but at Harvard, he had a reputation for having high energy and enthusiasm often causing his behavior to be questioned by his peers at that time.  Explore the hidden history of Theodore Roosevelt; love letters never-before-published, and photos never before made public will be revealed in an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming novel (and related research) that tells the story forgotten for over a century.  

Topics will include a unique perspective into the hidden history of Theodore Roosevelt focusing on his early years at Harvard College and the beginnings of Radcliffe and his subsequent fight for educational opportunities for women.
