For several years, Sharon Hazard has been taking us inside New York’s Gilded Age as detailed in the pages of Kate Shippen Roosevelt’s diary. Kate counted two presidents among her in-laws – Theodore and Franklin – besides a dazzling number of who’s who from business, art, the theater, and philanthropy. Sharon explains how she first gained access to Kate’s diary and what it’s been like to write about the Dowager’s adventures. Click to listen.
