First Ladies First: Women in the White House

Allison Tyler thinks a good book and a cup of tea help cure what ails you. If you're looking for her, she's probably painting in the woods.

First Ladies constitute the original First Wives’ Club. They always know what’s REALLY going on behind the scenes in the highest echelon of American government. The hope of reading some inside dirt is what makes their memoirs so fascinating — how they were changed by the presidency? And what happens after they leave the White House? Do they want a quiet life, or do they seek a larger role in public service? This collection reflects our own fascination with First Ladies and their incredible individual achievements.
