Book of the Week: "Tea With Presidential Families"

By Beulah Munshower Sommer and Pearl Dexter

From the inside cover:

Which president had a tea room built into his home? Which group of ladies refused an invitation to tea with a president? Which president's son caused an Italian diplomat's monocle to drop into his tea? Which president had hoe cakes and tea for breakfast? Which president's wife entertained at tea the day she moved into the White House? Which former president's wife refused to tell reporters what she was going to wear to tea? Which president, and his wife, had their dogs come to tea? Which first lady's last word was tea?

Here in this comprehensive, entertaining book you will find the answers to all these questions and learn how tea played an integral role in the first families' lives.

Tea with Presidential Families
gives us a fascinating look at the tea history of America's first families. It is lavishly illustrated with photographs, prints, and original works of art - many never before published. Celebrate with a cup of tea this election year by raising yours to salute America's presidential families!

(P.S. The answer to the first question is Thomas Jefferson.)
