Meet the Author: Mary Calvi
Mary Calvi is a 12-time New York Emmy-award winning journalist and national anchor. Her in-depth research for her debut book, “Dear George, Dear Mary: A Novel of George Washington’s First Love”, is the basis of a Smisthsonian Channel documentary. Calvi lives in Yonkers, NY.
Studded with the real love letters between a young Theodore Roosevelt and Boston beauty Alice Lee — many of them never before published — “If a Poem Could Live and Breathe” makes vivid what many historians believe to be the pivotal years that made the future president into the man of action that defined his political life and cemented his legacy.
This event is co-sponsored by the Dobbs Ferry Public Library and the Dobbs Ferry Historical Society.
