James B. Conroy - Jefferson's White House: Monticello on the Potomac

Upcoming Event
Saturday, November 16, 2019 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

While a vast scholarship exists on Monticello, the ambitious neoclassical home Thomas Jefferson designed and built in Charlottesville, Virginia, few have considered his influence on the White House. Living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue from 1801 to 1809, Jefferson was the first president to occupy the residence for his full term. In this detailed account, Conroy, author most recently of the award-winning Lincoln’s White House, combines research and storytelling to bring the period to vivid life by profiling Jefferson’s life and legacy through the lens of his presidential home, receiving dignitaries, peers, and enslaved persons alike as he worked to unify a deeply divided young nation.
