Tea-time talk: "Where Elegance Meets Convenience: The Monticello Dining Room"
Elizabeth Chew, Monticello's Curator, and Diane Ehrenpreis, Monticello's Research Historian, will share new information from their research on Monticello's Dining Room, from its importance in a social context where family, friends and political visitors shared ideas to its part as a place where Jefferson adapted the most recent technologies and conveniences he'd seen in Europe. Tea at 3:30 pm; talk begins at 4:00 pm. At Monticello's Jefferson Library. The event is free, but space is limited. Please e-mail to register.
