I went to a book party for Douglas Brinkley over at Roosevelt House this afternoon to celebrate the release of “The Wilderness Warrior,” his new biography of Theodore Roosevelt. The book focuses on the early influence of Darwin and Audubon on a young Roosevelt, his circle of naturalist friends, and his substantial contribution to conservation between the years 1901-1909. His efforts led to the preservation of over 230 million acres of American wilderness that have been enjoyed by generations to this day. There isn’t a party that Kimball Stroud organizes that I don’t enjoy, and this one was no exception. My boss and CEO of Washington Life Magazine, Soroush Richard Shehabi, arrived, just off a plane. Two-time Pulitzer prize-winning writer Jonathan Capehart was there, as was Janet Donovan, Julia Cohen, Melissa Torres, Darren Thomas, Nicole Boxer with her son Sawyer and husband Kevin Keegan, Bill Batts, Marc Adelman, The Honorable Ben Barnes, Jeff Trammel, Lyn Stout, and Karen Finney.
