Meryl Gordon | Bunny Mellon
Politics and Prose Bookstore – A socialite with a passion for gardening, Bunny Mellon (1910-2014) was a fixture on the Best-Dressed List as well as in social circles that included presidents, movie stars, and royalty. Heiress to the Listerine fortune and second wife of philanthropist Paul Mellon, Bunny may be best known now for having redesigned the White House Rose Garden at JFK’s request. She also designed landscapes for several Mellon properties and assembled one of the largest collections of rare horticultural books in the country. Always a lavish spender, Mellon used her private plane to send flowers to friends from her Virginia farm, and in 2008 she donated millions to John Edwards’s presidential campaign. In this sparkling biography, Meryl Gordon, author of Mrs. Astor Regrets and The Phantom of Fifth Avenue, draws on private letters and photos as well as interviews with Mellon and her close friends. This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.

SOLD OUT: Ron Chernow | Grant
Politics and Prose Bookstore – The event will be held at the Sixth & I. One of today’s premier biographers, Ron Chernow started his career by winning the National Book Award for The House of Morgan. More recently he won the Pulitzer for Washington, while his 2004 Hamilton earned the American History Book Prize and inspired the hit musical, for which Chernow served as historical consultant. His seventh book is a comprehensive life of Ulysses S. Grant (1822-1885), a man misunderstood in his own time and after. Complex and often contradictory, Grant provided distinguished service in the Mexican War yet resigned from the Army in disgrace—then rose quickly through the ranks in the Civil War, where he proved a masterful military strategist. His two-term presidency was scandal-ridden, yet he worked hard to crush the Ku Klux Klan and advance equal rights for African Americans. Later, with Mark Twain’s guidance, he wrote memoirs that have become the gold standard for the genre. . We are unable to take orders for signed copies in advance of this event.
