Letters from Mary Todd
The inspiration for Letters from Mary Todd came from a June 26, 2005 Time magazine article on Mary Todd Lincoln. At the conclusion of the article, the author suggested that this frequently maligned First Lady might have advice to share with future First Spouses. This intriguing notion is the basis for the text of Letters from Mary Todd, which explores the parallels between Mrs. Lincoln’s experience in the White House with those of the First Ladies from 1976-2008. Her compelling story is told through a fictional first person narrative which addresses many of the similarities between Mrs. Lincoln and her contemporary counterparts.
