The People and the President Lawrence and Cornelia Levine talked about the book they edited, The People and the President: America’s Conversation with FDR, published by Beacon Press. President Franklin Roosevelt delivered a total of 31 “Fireside Chat” radio addresses, spaced unevenly over all 12 years of his presidency. At the end of each chat, he invited his listeners to write and tell him their concerns. Each chapter contains a summary of the chat with accompanying commentary, followed by a representative sample of letters received by the White House in response to the talk. close
