Book Discussion with Alex Prud'homme, Author of "Dinner With The President"

Saturday, October 14, 2023

Join the Laconia Public Library, the Putnam Fund, and the Laconia Daily Sun at the Lakeport Opera House for a Book discussion with Alex Prud'homme, author of "Dinner with the President." The discussion includes a lecture with a PowerPoint presentation and Q&A session, followed by a cocktail reception/discussion in the bar area with a cash bar and dessert. "Dinner with the President" is described as a wonderfully entertaining, often surprising history of presidential taste, from the grim meals eaten by Washington and his starving troops at Valley Forge to Trump’s fast-food burgers and Biden’s ice cream—what they ate, why they ate it, and what it tells us about the state of the nation. Admission is free to the public. Tickets will be issued in advance and standbys will be allowed in as space allows on the evening of the event. Tickets are available from the Laconia Public Library or The Laconia Daily Sun.
