The First Ladies of the US

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:07 pm on 8 June 2016

Being the first lady is not all hosting parties and picking out the flower arrangements. First Women, the Grace and Power of America's Modern First ladies looks at the ten women to move into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington after their husbands became President of the United States. Author Kate Andersen-Brower has interviewed more than 200 people to put this book together which explores the unique bond between the first ladies who join the exclusive club.
