In popular memory, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the quintessential political “natural.” Born in 1882 to a wealthy, influential family and blessed with an abundance of charm and charisma, he seemed destined for high office. Yet for all his gifts, the young Roosevelt nonetheless lacked depth, empathy, and an ability to think strategically. Those qualities, so essential to his success as president, were skills he acquired during his seven-year journey through illness and recovery.

Join Atlanta History Center for a virtual Author Talk with Jonathan Darman, author of the book Becoming FDR: The Personal Crisis that Made a President.

This event is virtual, free, and open to the public.
