In his latest book, Frank and Al, editor and author Terry Golway tells the untold story of an unlikely political partnership—between a to-the-manor-born Protestant (Franklin D. Roosevelt) and a Lower East Side Catholic (Al Smith)—and how they transformed the Democratic Party and took it and American politics out of the 19th century and and into the 20th century. A book signing follows the program.
