Please join the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies and the University of Georgia Press in welcoming author Kaye Minchew for a talk focused on her new book, A President in Our Midst: Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Georgia. Roosevelt visited Georgia forty-one times between 1924 and 1945. Minchew’s work offers a rich gathering of photographs and remembrances that document the vital role of Georgia’s people and places in FDR’s rise from his position as a despairing politician daunted by disease to his role as a revered leader who guided the country through its worst depression and a world war. A light reception and book signing will follow the lecture at 5:00 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public. The event is part of Ready, Steady, Vote!, a series of events spotlighting all things presidential during the 2016 election season. For more information on the series visit http://www.rbrl.blogspot.com, call (706) 542-5788, or email jhebbard@uga.edu.
