Presented LIVE on Zoom
Join us for the riveting story of John and Jessie Frémont, the husband and wife team who in the 1800s linked themselves to three of the most important movements of their time: opposition to slavery, westward settlement, and women’s suffrage. Author Steve Inskeep, in conversation with presidential historian Douglas Brinkley, tells the story of this intelligent pair, who were instrumental figures during a time of great social and political upheaval in America.
Steve Inskeep is a co-host of NPR’s Morning Edition, the most widely heard radio program in the United States, and of NPR’s Up First, one of the nation’s most popular podcasts. He is the author of several books, including Imperfect Union: How Jessie and John Frémont Mapped the West, Invented Celebrity, and Helped Cause the Civil War. Douglas Brinkley (moderator) is a bestselling author and serves as presidential historian for CNN and the New-York Historical Society.
