Literary Ladies to discuss ‘The Residence’ Friday


By Marilyn Stroud

Special to The PREVIEW

Kate Andersen Brower is a New York Times best-selling author and has written several nonfiction books that are related to the White House, where she served for several years as a Bloomberg news reporter during the Obama years.

Our book, “The Residence,” is about the inside private world of the White House, including the Kennedys, the Johnsons, the Nixons, the Reagans, the Clintons and the Obamas.

Brower interviewed many retired White House staff members, including valets, chefs, butlers and maids about their various experiences with our former presidents, first ladies and children. How the families dealt with the Bay of Pigs, the shooting of JFK, the Vietnam War and 9/11 are discussed in this book. Many happy and fun moments are also related in this book.

“The Residence” is available at the library and we invite you to join us this Friday, Feb. 23, at 10:30 a.m. at the Ruby M. Sisson Memorial Library. The Literary Ladies meet monthly at the library on the fourth Friday of the month from 10:30 a.m. to noon.
