3/5/2019 - First Ladies: An Adventure in Glamour, Guts & Gumption Presentation

On Wednesday, April 3, 2019 from 2-3:30pm, in Kingsley Room, Mariann Millard will return to talk about the First Ladies of the United States: who they are, what made them tick, and how they handled their responsibilities.

Join us to learn more about the personalities and adventures of the women who became the First Ladies of the United States. Who were they really? What made them tick? Did they love or loathe their role? Did they sink or swim navigating the complexities of politics, protocol and publicity, whether they did so willingly or not? The presentation is designed to be lively, humorous and engaging by weaving historical and modern events and facts about First Ladies to understand and appreciate the important role they play, starting with Martha Washington.

Mariann Millard is a Licensed Washington, DC Guide and a certified Tour Director who specializes in Italy. She thoroughly enjoys entertaining folks with her love of history to connect people, places and things. Her extensive travel throughout her life has given her a keen appreciation for what makes us human and for the differences that makes us culturally unique.

Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this presentation is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency. Space is limited and registration is required. Please call 203-262-0626 ext. 130 to register. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Southbury Public Library.
