Join us for a delicious dinner followed by a lively discussion of Monticello: a Daughter and Her Father by Sally Cabot Gunning. After the death of her beloved mother, Martha Jefferson spent five years abroad with her father, Thomas Jefferson, on his first diplomatic mission to France. Now, at seventeen, Jefferson’s bright, handsome eldest daughter is returning to the lush hills of the family’s beloved Virginia plantation, Monticello. While the large, beautiful estate is the same as she remembers, Martha has changed. The world around her has also become far more complicated than it once seemed.
Copies of the book will be available at the library in mid-April.
