Companion to current exhibit at Maryland Historical Society. Meet the author before her engaging lecture which will focus on Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte and her friendship with Tudor Place resident Martha “Markie” Williams Carter. Between 1875 and 1879, Bonaparte and Carter formed a unique friendship while residing in the same Baltimore boarding house. In her diaries, Markie Williams Carter documented the details of her conversations with Elizabeth and provided a private glimpse of this noted 19th century celebrity in her old age—details that proved invaluable for Alexandra Deutsch as she was writing her book, "A Woman of Two Worlds: Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte".
