Cultural commentator, National Humanities Medal recipient, and Rhodes scholar Clay Jenkinson presents a debate between two of our county’s greatest presidents: Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt. Co-founder of the modern Chatuauqua movement, a forum for public discussion about the ideas and lives of key figures in American history, Jenkinson offers a three-part Chautauqua performance. First, Jenkinson appears in costume in the persona of his characters, speaking as presidents Jefferson and Roosevelt. Then he opens the floor to questions from the audience. Lastly, he breaks character and answers questions as a scholar, based on his research. Presented by Seattle Public Library as part of its 2012 McLellan/O’Donnell Living History Series.
