VENUE CHANGE! Now at the West Tisbury Public Library! 

 

Geoffrey Cowan: A Conversation with Tweed Roosevelt at the West Tisbury Library

Tuesday, June 28th, at 7:00pm, the West Tisbury Library Foundation will host a discussion with Geoffrey Cowan and Tweed Roosevelt. Mr. Cowan will speak about his newly published and well-reviewed book, Let the People Rule: Theodore Roosevelt and the Birth of the Presidential Primary. He will then have a conversation with Tweed Roosevelt, president of the Theodore Roosevelt Association and great-grandson of President Theodore Roosevelt. For his role in dramatically increasing the number of presidential primaries in 1968, ABC Television News called Geoffrey Cowan “the man who did more to change Democratic Conventions than anyone since Andrew Jackson started them.” Given the timing of our current primary season this should be a spirited and illuminating evening. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing. Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.
