Thornwillow presents The White House Miscellany, the 9th in our libretto series. The White House Miscellany details how many windows, gardens, oval rooms, and more come together to create one of the most recognizable houses in the world, as well as the many firsts, births, and deaths that occurred within its white walls. The Miscellany's fun facts, figures, and anecdotes about the House's architecture and history have been provided by the White House Historical Association.

Mixology master Jeffrey M. Pogash presents his take on the origins of one of the world's best-loved and most complex cocktails.

It Happened Here is a convivial, social, and artistic history of Old New York, as seen through the prism of one of its grandest hotels. Blume paints a stunning picture of The St. Regis New York's charisma and current as it strives to be both historic and neoteric.
In 1940, haunted by his own survival, John B. Thayer set down his searing memories of the S.S. Titanic's last moments as a tribute to his father, who had not survived the disaster. Presented with a new introduction by Lorin Stein, A Survivor's Tale gives an unforgettable firsthand account of an event that seemingly “symbolized the collapse of civilization.”
From presidential pets (Coolidge had two very political lion cubs) to code names (you'll never guess who Timberwolf was), Lewis Lapham compiles anecdotes, quotations, and unusual facts and figures to tell both the silly and the stately history of America's first forty four presidents.
