Tea with our first ladies, from Martha to Melania

They are unelected officials, as it were – unpaid and under a microscope for every fashion and interior design choice made and every word uttered as they represent our nation at home and abroad. We’re talking, of course, about America’s first ladies, the subject of a virtual tea at The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum in Norwalk Sunday, Nov. 8 from 2 to 4 p.m.

The event, chaired by trustee Hunter Arton, will feature a talk on “The Media’s Fascination With First Ladies” by Lisa M. Burns, professor of media studies at Quinnipiac University. The program includes a hat contest with prizes and a silent auction, and while entries for the contest are now closed, the auction is open until 5 p.m. Nov. 8.

The cost of the “Virtual First Ladies Tea” is $25; $20 for LMMM members. And don’t forget the museum is open for actual tours.
