The fourth program in our 2017 Speaker Series features Jacqueline Berger, author and historian, who will present an illustrated lecture entitled "First Ladies of Resilience."
Jacqueline Berger, known as "The First Ladies Lady," is a national expert and guest speaker on America's First Ladies. With more than 25 years of research and experience, she brings these dynamic women from history to life, while revealing the scandals and false rumors surrounding them. Jacqueline has been invited to share her knowledge to standing-room only audiences at: Presidential Libraries, Universities, and Conferences, as well as Professional Groups, Political Clubs, and other national organizations across the country.
"The First Ladies Lady" is a leading authority on America's First Ladies. Her humor, knowledge and personal enthusiasm for this "sorority of women" has fascinated, amazed, and inspired audiences throughout the United States. All of her presentations are non-partisan and have been highly acclaimed by both men and women alike. Guests will be motivated by the many invaluable life lessons Jacqueline has learned from these remarkable women, as she entertains listeners with their true-life stories.
Jacqueline Berger is a native of California, and lives in a suburb of Los Angeles with her family. Her interest and fascination with the First Ladies originally began when a First Lady who shared her first name, Jacqueline Kennedy, was living in the White House. Since then Ms. Berger has built up a personal library of over 275 books, tapes and videos, from the country's most distinguished and leading historians on America's First Ladies.
Her allure with the First Ladies continued, as Berger became the first woman and youngest manager for a major real estate lending and financial institution. After 25 years in the business world, Berger decided to follow her life's dream of sharing the remarkable lives of America's First Ladies. She left her position as Vice President, and became a popular guest speaker.
Regarding her lecture on September 27, Ms. Berger says "One could state correctly that America's First Ladies are iconic examples of resilience, courage and emotional agility. This has all been in the spotlight of media attention, against the backdrop of 'history in the making' and largely behind the scenes. There is no greater test of one's imagined reservoir of resilience than the unpredictability of the moment."
A reception with the speaker, including refreshments and a cash bar, opens at 6:00 pm, and the illustrated lecture will begin at 7:00 pm. For additional details, call 800-SEE-1830 (800-733-1830).
