Authors Marc Peyser and Timothy Dwyer will be on hand to discuss their acclaimed new book, Hissing Cousins: The Lifelong Rivalry of Eleanor Roosevelt and Alice Roosevelt Longworth! Doors open at 9:00, followed by a reading and discussion with the authors and 9:15. From the publisher: “Democratic icon Eleanor was committed to social justice and hated the limelight; Republican Alice was an opponent of big government who gained notoriety for her cutting remarks. … When the family business is politics, winning trumps everything. Lively, intimate, and stylishly written, Hissing Cousins is a double biography of two extraordinary women whose entwined lives give us a sweeping look at the twentieth century in America.” A light breakfast will be provided. This event is free and open to the public!
