Gregg Coodley presents The Magnificent Losers

Southwest Portland author Gregg Coodley will read from his book, The Magnificent Losers.

Some of history's greatest and grandest reformers, revolutionaries and fighters for freedom and justice lost. They did not achieve their goals in their lifetime. Yet perhaps they did not "lose" after all, for the ideas they fought for lived on. The Magnificent Losers tells the story of twenty of these extraordinary, sometimes forgotten figures over the last two thousand years. The narrative sweeps from the Roman Republic to the Russian steppes, from Boston to Peru and the plains of Nebraska to the Philippines. With swords and speeches, schools and strikes, and despite their apparent defeats, these Magnificent Losers helped create a better world.
