If a Poem Could Live and Breathe: A Novel of Teddy Roosevelt’s First Love | A Conversation with Mary Calvi and Dana Tyler
Join the Greenwich Historical Society in welcoming author Mary Calvi as she discusses her latest novel, If a Poem Could Live and Breathe: A Novel of Teddy Roosevelt’s First Love. Calvi will be joined in conversation by co-anchor Dana Tyler of CBS New York as she shares more about her research process and the new historical perspectives that emerged as a result.
Studded with the real love letters between a young Theodore Roosevelt and Boston beauty Alice Lee—many of them never-before-published—If a Poem Could Live and Breathe makes vivid what many historians believe to be the pivotal years that made the future president into the man of action that defined his political life, and cemented his legacy.
