Marion Winik read from her book, Highs in the Low Fifties, at Politics & Prose on Saturday, June 29, 2013.

Winik, NPR commentator, essayist, and poet, may often feel her life is a mess, but her “Baltimore Fishbowl Bohemian Rhapsody” column was named a “Best of Baltimore” by Baltimore magazine. Her new collection of humorous essays is full of the wit, wisdom, and despair she’s been party to as a once-widowed, once-divorced single mother who still dates.

The range of John Hay’s remarkable life considered by Taliaferro’s biography covers the statesman’s tenure as Lincoln’s private secretary to his years as Secretary of State under presidents McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt. Hay (1838-1905) also knew Gilded Age figures such as Mark Twain and Horace Greeley, and in his personal life he vied with Henry Adams for the romantic attentions of one Madame X, a Washington society hostess.
