Cormac O'Brien
Secret Lives of the First Ladies

Strange Stories and Shocking Trivia from Inside the White House
Thursday, November 16, 7-8pm



Whether she’s a leading lady, loyal spouse, or lightning rod for scandal, the First Lady of the United States has always been in the spotlight—and in 2017 that’s truer than ever. This revised and expanded edition features outrageous and uncensored profiles of the women of the White House, from Martha to Melania, complete with hundreds of little-known, politically incorrect, and downright wacko facts. Did you know that . . .
 
• Dolley Madison loved to chew tobacco
• Mary Todd Lincoln conducted séances on a regular basis
• Eleanor Roosevelt and Ellen Wilson both carried guns
• Jacqueline Kennedy spent $121,000 on her wardrobe in a single year
• Betty Ford liked to chat on CB radios—her handle was “First Mama”
And much, much more.
 
American history was never this much fun in school!
