Lady First: The World of First Lady Sarah Polk
At the same time as the women’s rights convention was taking place in 1848, First lady Sarah Childress Polk was wielding influence unprecedented for a woman. History remembers those women at the convention, but it has all but forgotten Sarah Polk. With her latest book, Lady First, professor Amy S. Greenberg brings her story into vivid focus as a remarkably influential First Lady, brilliant master of the art of high politics, and her complicated but essential part in American feminism. A book signing will follow the program.
