Atlanta History Center says
Join First Lady Sandra Deal, her co-authors, Dr. Jennifer Dickey and Dr. Catherine Lewis, and members of Georgia's first families for a lively evening of storytelling about life in Georgia's most public house. The evening will be filled with behind-the-scenes stories of what it is like to live in the Georgia Governor's Mansion, first occupied by the family of Lester Maddox in 1968. The event will be followed by a book signing of their newest book, Memories of the Mansion: The Story of Georgia's Governor’s Mansion.

Designed by Atlanta architect A. Thomas Bradbury, the Georgia Governor's Mansion has been home to eight first families and houses a distinguished collection of American art and antiques. Often called “the people’s house,” the mansion is always on display, always serving the public. The authors conducted more than one hundred oral histories with the former first families, staff members, and current employees to capture rare anecdotes of what life was like inside the state’s most public residence. This richly illustrated book not only documents this extraordinary place and the people who have lived and worked here, but it also helps ensure the preservation of this historic resource so that it may continue to serve the state and its people.

Admission for all lectures is $5 members, $10 nonmembers, and free to AHC Insiders unless otherwise noted. Reservations are required, please call 404.814.4150 or reserve tickets online at AtlantaHistoryCenter.com/Lectures.
