A Novel Lunch Series–The Mentelles by Randolph Paul Runyon–Final Date!

August 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

$15 – $20

In The Mentelles, Randolph Paul Runyon draws on newly translated materials and previously overlooked primary sources to explore the life and times of the Mentelles – how their origins and education gave them access to the higher strata of Bluegrass society, even as this French immigrant duo’s views on religion, politics and culture kept them from feeling at home in America. They were intimates of Henry Clay and one of their daughters married into the Clay family, but like other immigrant families in the region, they struggled to survive.
