On Friday, February 17th, FYPL and Yonkers Public Library welcomed the brilliant and dynamic Mary Calvi who spoke to the crowd of over 100 guests about her new novel, If a Poem Could Live and Breathe: A Novel of Teddy Roosevelt's First Love. Calvi's original archival research uncovered many never-before-published love letters between Teddy Roosevelt and his first love, Alice Lee. The book presentation was followed by a book signing. We thank bookseller Womrath Bookshop, for being on-hand for this incredible evening.
