Do you want to know the inside scoop on what it’s like to be a White House butler? Do you want to know about the real Eugene Allen the man the movie The Butler is based on? Former White House butler, Alan DeValerio, will tell you about his personal experience. He will give you the inside details about all the preparations involved in White House Entertaining. Not only will he relate his first-hand experiences with history, he will pass on stories he heard from those who have been taking care of our First Families ever since the Franklin Roosevelt administration.
Copies of his book A History of Entertaining in the Modern White House will be available for purchase. This program is brought to you by the East Lyme Public Library and the East Lyme Senior Center.
