Yonkers Public Library and Foundation for the Yonkers Public Library are pleased to celebrate the latest novel from Emmy-award winning journalist and first lady of Yonkers Mary Calvi. IF A POEM COULD LIVE AND BREATHE: A NOVEL OF TEDDY ROOSEVELT’S FIRST LOVE (St. Martin’s Press) brings to life the love letters between a young Teddy Roosevelt and Boston beauty Alice Lee, many of them never before published.

Hear Mary Calvi discuss the primary sources and incredible research that inspired this vivid portrait of love in the Gilded Age, followed by a Q & A and author signing. An exciting follow up to the success of her historical debut DEAR GEORGE, DEAR MARY, this radiant love story is sure to capture the hearts and minds of readers everywhere.

Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Womrath Bookshop. This event is presented by the Foundation for the Yonkers Public Library.
