Event Type

Newport, Rhode Island is celebrated for its stunning seascapes and famous mansions, from presidents to philanthropists, it is also known for the people who summered and socialized there.  Author, Lecturer, & Lifestyle Editor Bettie Bearden Pardee provides an insider’s glimpse into this fabled town where privacy is a treasured asset. An accomplished hostess, her home, “parterre,” and its gardens provide the ideal setting for carrying on Newport’s tradition of gracious living. She is the author of two books on entertaining: Private Newport: At Home And In The Garden and Living Newport: Houses, People, Style. Ms. Pardee’s books will be available for purchase and signing following the lecture.
