CRANFORD—The Cranford Public Library invites the public to meet critically acclaimed historian Terry Golway at the Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Avenue, on Wednesday, Dec. 2, at 7:30 p.m., where he will discuss his latest book, “Together We Cannot Fail: How FDR Led the Nation from Darkness to Victory through Hope, Courage and Unwavering Trust in the American People.”
Golway is a contributor to the New York Times, the Boston Globe, American Heritage, the Irish Echo, as well as a columnist for America. His other books include: “The Irish in America”; “Irish Rebel: John Devoy and America’s Fight for Freedom”; “For Cause of Liberty: A Thousand Years of Ireland’s Heroes”; “Full of Grace: An Oral Biography of John Cardinal O’Connor”; “So Others May Live: A History of New York’s Bravest: The FDNY from 1700 to the Present”; “Washington’s General: Nathanael Greene and the Triumph of the American Revolution”; and “Let Every Nation Know: John F. Kennedy in His Own Words.”
“Together We Cannot Fail” offers a new view of how Franklin Roosevelt transformed an insular America into the world’s most revered and feared superpower. An exclusive accompanying CD uses FDR’s own words to illustrate how he led the nation through the Great Depression and World War II to its “rendezvous with destiny.”
Library Journal described the book as “a well-researched scholarly work that is also a readable page-turner,” while Publishers Weekly noted that “the book and CD will resonate deeply with those seeking a historical context for today’s economic crisis, interested in WWII or merely fascinated by the spoken word’s power to inspire hope.”
Golway will have copies of “Together We Cannot Fail” available for purchase and for signing. Admission is free and all are welcome.
