Hissing Cousins: The Lifelong Rivalry of Eleanor Roosevelt and Alice Roosevelt Longworth with Timothy Dwyer

Author of Hissing Cousins, Timothy Dwyer will discuss the loving but contentious relationship of Alice Roosevelt Longworth, Teddy Roosevelt’s witty and flamboyant daughter, and his niece Eleanor, who would emerge from a tragic childhood and troubled marriage to become our country’s most influential first lady. Their rivalry would persist through the Roosevelt family’s triumphs and tragedies, playing out against a backdrop of the most important events of the 20th Century. Timothy Dwyer grew up on Long Island’s Eaton’s Neck, a short distance from the Roosevelt estate of Sagamore Hill, and currently lives in Manhattan. The critically-praised Hissing Cousins is his first published work.
