Brands’ FDR Biography Hits Bookstores Tomorrow

History Professor H.W. Brand’s new FDR biography “Traitor to His Class: The Privileged Life and Radical Presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt” (Doubleday, 2008) hits bookstores tomorrow.

For insight on Brands’ inspiration for the project, check out book editor Jeff Salamon’s interview with the historian in the story “TR, FDR, and Ph.D.’s: Two Austin historians discuss all things Roosevelt” from the Nov. 1 issue of the Austin American-Statesman.

Brands heads out on a nationwide book tour for “Traitor to his Class” this week. Visit his Web site for more info on cities and tour dates.

Austinites: If you missed Brands’ talk at the Texas Book Festival, BookPeople will host a signing for “Traitor to His Class” next Monday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m.
