Calvin Coolige At Home in Northampton

Calvin Coolidge At Home in Northampton, a new book by local historian and volunteer Susan Well, is now available. Using original material from the collections at the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Library and Museum, Well presents the daily life and residences of Calvin Coolidge in Northampton, Massachusetts. Well uses new sources to document the unique and interesting personal life stories of Coolidge’s landlords and neighbors. Most of the Museum’s visitors ask where the former President lived, and now we have a definitive answer for them.

Susan Well will give an author talk and book signing at the Coolidge Museum Wednesday, June 17 at 7pm.
The book is for sale for $16 at the Forbes Library Circulation Desk or Coolidge Museum.
Online ordering is coming soon. Email Coolidge@forbeslibrary.org for an order form.

Was it not Dorothy Parker who said, when interrupted whilst taking her customary dry martini in the Algoquin Hotel with the news of the death of Calvin Coolidge, "How did they know?"
