Feather Schwartz Foster is an author/historian by avocation, specializing the First Ladies between Martha Washington
and Mamie Eisenhower. She has published four books, has been a guest on National Public Radio and was featured on C-SPAN’s First Ladies series. She has made more than 300 presentations, programs and lectures. She has been an instructor at the Christopher Wren Society at William & Mary, and also at Christopher Newport University.

“Mary Lincoln’s Flannel Pajamas and Other Stories from the First Ladies’ Closet” was featured at the Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville.
Consider these queries from the Back Cover:
. . . Did Mary Lincoln really wear flannel pajamas?
. . . Why was Martha Washington’s “dress” turned into a pincushion?
. . . How did Julia Grant’s hat show support for the Confederacy?
. . . Did Edith Wilson really track mud onto the White House carpets?
These are some of the stories (all true) that have been told about some of the First Ladies you may have forgotten about
– or never knew. The stories are either factual, actual or “metaphorical” using an item of their clothing to propel the tale.
(Books will be available for purchase and signing at this event.)

Please register by September 6 as seating is limited!
