  |   April 1, 2014  |  Comment

HYDE PARK, NY — The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum is pleased to present an author talk and book signing with HARVEY J. KAYE — author of THE FIGHT FOR THE FOUR FREEDOMS: WHAT MADE FDR AND THE GREATEST GENERATION TRULY GREAT.

FDR-The Four Freedoms

The program will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 8, 2014 in the Henry A. Wallace Center at the FDR Presidential Library and Home. Following the presentation, Professor Kaye will be available to sign copies of his book. This event is free and open to the public.

On January 6, 1941, the Greatest Generation gave voice to its founding principles, the Four Freedoms: Freedom from want and from fear. Freedom of speech and religion. In the name of the Four Freedoms they fought the Great Depression. In the name of the Four Freedoms they defeated the Axis powers.

In THE FIGHT FOR THE FOUR FREEDOMS, Harvey J. Kaye argues that all the Greatest Generation fought for is under siege, and Americans need to remember their full achievement, and, so armed, take up again the fight for the Four Freedoms.

Harvey J. Kaye is the Ben and Joyce Rosenberg Professor of Democracy and Justice Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. An award-winning author, Kaye has appeared as a guest on numerous television and radio programs, including “Bill Moyers Journal,” BookTV’s “After Words,” “Here and Now,” and “The Thom Hartmann Show.”
