First House debuts at the Governor’s Mansion
First House made its debut at the Governor’s Mansion with a lovely reception. Novelist David Baldacci and First Lady Maureen McDonnell were there to introduce me and the book, and there was a short film preview, a film that was made about the book and the Mansion’s bicentennial. Speechifying was kept short–just 3-5 minutes each-and then we were back to the socializing. A fun afternoon!
