Feather Schwartz Foster, of Scotch Plains, NJ, author of "LADIES: A Conjecture of Personalities" will be presenting a program about her book concerning the personalities of the "old" First Ladies, to the Kenilworth, NJ Historical Society, at 7:30 PM, Thursday, September 16, 2004.
According to the author, "Making a plausible conjecture about historical figures take a good deal more than researching historical fact." Schwartz Foster will discuss the combining of actual fact, the social history of the times these Ladies lived in, and the evolution of the role First Ladies have played during the first 150 years of this country."
The author has been an amateur presidential historian for three decades. Following a long career in advertising and having written a score of children's musical shows, she has drawn on her thousand-volume personal presidential library and her love of history by penning "LADIES: A Conjecture of Personalities". She has made numerous appearances in the metro-NJ area discussing her book.
