Video of THE PRESIDENT'S LUNCH research trip


Here is a quick video montage of my family's recent travels to research THE PRESIDENT’S LUNCH. 

It took us to Washington D.C., New York City, Hyde Park in NY, Salem and Rockport in Massachusetts and Campobello Island in Canada. 

The purpose was to visit the houses and look into the lives of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, on whom the book is based. We even met one or two people who knew them personally!

Watch closely and you'll see the locations of many scenes from the book, including the statue in Rock Creek Cemetery that Eleanor travels to in her very first scene, and the bluff overlooking the Hudson River where Iris spends reflective moments.

The research trip wasn't all work. Along the way, as you'll see, we had a lot of fun!
