Celadon Books Acquires New Nonfiction Book by Jesse Wegman

Celadon Books is pleased to announce the acquisition of THE LOST FOUNDER: JAMES WILSON AND THE DREAM OF A NEW AMERICA by Jesse Wegman, New York Times editorial board member and author of LET THE PEOPLE PICK THE PRESIDENT. The nonfiction book recovers the story of James Wilson—the main architect of the Constitution, a justice on the first Supreme Court, and the strongest proponent of democracy among the founding fathers—whose complicated, tragically short life and essential contributions to our country's birth illuminate today's debates about how government should function and whom it should serve. Executive Editor Bill Hamilton acquired the book, at auction, from David Kuhn and Nate Muscato at Aevitas Creative Management (NA).
