About the event
Please join us as Laurence Jurdem presents his latest work, "The Rough Rider and the Professor."
Evoking the political intrigue of the Gilded Age, "The Rough Rider and the Professor" chronicles the extraordinary thirty-five-year friendship between President Theodore Roosevelt and Senator Henry Cabot Lodge of Massachusetts. Theodore Roosevelt was a uniquely gifted figure. A man of great intellect and physicality, the New York patrician captured the imagination of the American people with his engaging personality and determination to give all citizens regardless of race, color, or creed the opportunity to achieve the American dream.
Laurence Jurdem, Ph.D., is currently an adjunct professor of history at Fairfield University and Fordham College’s Lincoln Center campus. A frequent writer on American politics, his articles have appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the San Francisco Chronicle.
