In 1920, Isabel Anderson published Presidents and Pies: Life in Washington, 1897-1919 about her experiences in D.C., mainly during the Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft administrations. The book captures the political and social life of the nation's capital in the early 20th century, culminating in the upheaval of the First World War and the Spanish flu epidemic. In this evening with Isabel, Helen Hayes Award-winning actress Naomi Jacobson brings Mrs. Anderson and her stories to life with selected readings from her book. The program will last approximately 1 hour, followed by an informal reception. Pie will be served! To register, visit http://www.societyofthecincinnati.org/events/public
