On Saturday, June 22, 2024, from 9:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., the FDR Presidential Library and Museum will host the 20th annual Roosevelt Reading Festival. The day-long program will highlight the recently published work of fourteen authors -- including a special afternoon presentation with Paul M.

In six concurrent sessions taking place throughout the day, fourteen authors of works that draw upon the Roosevelt Library archives -- or focus on the Roosevelt era -- will present author talks (and book signings).
