Matthew Algeo: The President is a Sick Man *at Longfellow Books*

The President is a Sick ManAuthor Matthew Algeo at Longfellow Books
Tuesday, July 19th at 7:00 pm

The President Is a Sick Man details an extraordinary but almost unknown chapter in American history: Grover Cleveland’s secret cancer surgery and the brazen political cover-up by a politician whose most memorable quote was “Tell the truth.”  The facts concerning the disappearance of Grover Cleveland that summer were so well concealed that even more than a century later a full and fair account has never been published. Until now.

"Algeo paints a colorful portrait of political intrigue and journalism during the Gilded Age." —Publishers Weekly
