Reagan Biographer Edmund Morris to Discuss New Roosevelt Book


DALLAS, TX - National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Edmund Morris will discuss the third in his Teddy Roosevelt trilogy, Colonel Roosevelt, which details Theodore Roosevelt's life after his Presidency. 

Morris notes that, of all our great Presidents, Theodore Roosevelt is the only one whose greatness increased after he left office. When he toured Europe in 1910 as plain "Colonel Roosevelt," he was hailed as the most famous man in the world.  No other President has written forty books, hunted lions, founded a third political party and survived an assassin's bullet.

Morris spent several years as several years as President Reagan's authorized biographer before publishing the national bestseller Dutch: A Memoir of Ronald Reagan in 1999.

NCPA President, CEO and Kellye Wright Fellow John Goodman will host the NCPA Economic Policy Forum & Author Series.  Media are invited to attend.
