History Book Festival Presents: Eleanor Herman – Sex with Presidents
October 1, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm| Free
In collaboration with the History Book Festival, join us to talk with Eleanor Herman, author of “Sex with Presidents: The Ins and Outs of Love and Lust in the White House,” one of the books featured at the 2020 virtual History Book Festival.
While Americans have a reputation for being strait-laced, many of the nation’s leaders (e.g., Alexander Hamilton, Warren G. Harding, Grover Cleveland, and John F. Kennedy) have been anything but puritanical. This book revisits some of the sex scandals that have rocked the nation’s capital and shocked the public. While Americans have judged their leaders’ affairs more harshly compared to citizens of other nations, did they mostly just hate being lied to? And do they now care more about issues other than a politician’s sex life?
Eleanor Herman is the bestselling author of “The Royal Art of Poison,” “Sex with Kings,” “Sex with the Queen,” and other works of popular history. She lives in McLean, Virginia.
Online program presented by the History Book Festival and Lewes Public Library.
