The Mount Prospect Public Library Foundation welcomes Barbara Rinella, whose performance will bring to life Mrs. Grant and Madame Jule by Jennifer Chiaverini. This is the first novel to chronicle the singular relationship between Julia Grant, beloved First Lady and wife of 18th President Ulysses S. Grant, and the courageous woman who was her slave and namesake. It also reveals how love blossomed between President Grant, an Army soldier and serious abolitionist, and Julia, a lovely Southern belle. This performance is a fundraiser for the Mount Prospect Public Library Foundation, which provides funding for programming and special projects at the library. Tickets are $20 and must be purchased in person at the Registration Desk. For more information, visit, call 847.253.5675 or stop by the library.
