September 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

An Evening With Gary Ginsberg, author of “First Friends: The Powerful, Unsung (And Unelected) People Who Shaped Our Presidents”

Author Gary Ginsberg’s new book, First Friends, examines White House history as told through the stories of the best friends and closest confidants of American presidents such as Lincoln and Joshua Speed, FDR and Daisy Suckley, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, and Bill Clinton and Vernon Jordan.

First Friends is an engaging look into the lives of Commanders-in-Chief and how their presidencies were shaped by those they held most dear. Join us on Zoom as Ginsberg provides insights into the lives of the men who held the most powerful political office in the world by looking at the friends on whom they relied.

Hosted by Highland Park Public Library and presented in partnership with multiple Illinois libraries.
