Due to COVID-19, Coventry Public Library remains closed to the public until further notice. Staff is available by phone Monday - Friday, 9 am - 4 pm.
Anne Barrett presents Martha Washington, her early life, triumphs and tragedies, determined spirit, and undying devotion to the father of our country. She’ll discuss her annual pilgrimages to revolutionary winter encampments, her care of the soldiers that earned her the fond name “lady Washington,” and she’ll sing battlefield songs she heard there. Learn about her recent experience in defining the role of first lady, and even how she feels about Mr. Jefferson!. Spend an hour with the mother of our nation.
