Andrew Meier – Morgenthau: Power, Privilege, and the Rise of an American Dynasty
October 20 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
An “epic and intimate” (David M. Kennedy) portrait of four generations of the Morgenthau family, a dynasty of power brokers and public officials with an outsize — and previously unmapped — influence extending from daily life in New York City to the shaping of the American Century
The saga of the Morgenthaus has lain half hidden in the shadows for too long. At heart a family history, Morgenthau is also an American epic, as sprawling and surprising as the country itself.
Andrew Meier is the author of Black Earth: A Journey Through Russia After the Fall and The Lost Spy: An American in Stalin’s Secret Service.
