Registration for this event is no longer open.


Alan DeValerio is a former White House butler and he's coming to West Hartford! He'll 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, but he will pass on the stories from those people that he worked with (like Eugene Allen, on whom the movie “The Butler” was based) who have been taking care of our First Families ever since the Franklin Roosevelt administration!

Alan will also display many of the White House artifacts (menus, programs, Christmas cards, personal photos, etc.) that he has collected over the years. And after the program his new book “A History of Entertainment in the Modern White House” will be available for purchase and signing. ($20.00 cash or check) This is a presentation that you won't want to miss! 

PARKING: There is ample library event parking in the nearby Isham Garage. Please bypass the garage kiosks and come directly to the Noah Webster Library Meeting Room, 20 South Main Street, where you may validate your parking with your license plate number.
