Fanny Seward: A Life Lecture with Trudy Krisher

  • Join author and educator Trudy Krisher for an enthralling discussing of her latest book about William Seward’s youngest child, Fanny. Tragically passing at age 21, Fanny’s short life was punctuated by elation and tragedy as she witnessed both the landmark events of the antebellum era, and also the assassination attempt on her father. A meticulous diarist, Fanny’s firsthand accounts provide Krisher a strong foundation to recreate the details of her fascinating life.
