Featured Meet the Members

   Born in the same era, both first ladies--of rural, humble birth, who did not graduate from high school--emerged as charismatic leaders; the trajectories of their high-profile achievements and dramatic life journeys paralleling in astonishing chrysalis patterns, eclipsing the political Suns of the steely-eyed, more educated, men of expediency they married.

Judge Law discusses American Evita

   Their husbands kept from each, the identical life-threatening medical secret. Their humanitarian legacies endure beyond each woman’s early, poignant death from the same cause. Their husbands’ self-focused legacies proved gossamer.

   How much I love this book! It is just so gripping, fascinating and engaging! Beautifully written too. Its revelations are sensational. The way Janice Law puts words together makes me want to jump up and down cheering, writes Helen Anders, former Austin American Statesman.

AE is Law’s 4th book accepted into Library of Congress collections.
