Burt Solomon - The Attempted Murder of Teddy Roosevelt

Upcoming Event
Saturday, January 11, 2020 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Less than a year into his tenure as president, Theodore Roosevelt was nearly killed when his horse-drawn carriage collided with an electric trolley. But was the incident really an accident? In his second historical thriller, Solomon, author of The Murder of Willie Lincoln and a contributing editor for The Atlantic and National Journal, draws on his deep familiarity with presidential lore to spin a fascinating alternative history, replete with compelling real-world figures including Henry Adams, Emma Goldman, and J.P. Morgan, and featuring Roosevelt’s Secretary of State John Hay as an amateur sleuth on the trail of a would-be assassin.
