Friday, February 15

On Friday, February 15, 2019, the Friends of Philipse Manor Hall will host a reading and book signing to celebrate the launch of Dear George, Dear Mary: A Novel of George Washington's First Love by Mary Calvi.

George Washington met Mary Philipse on Valentine's Day 1756 at a dance at Philipse Manor Hall. They fell in love. The rest, as they say, is history. Their story is intertwined with the birth of the United States of America. And it all started here, in the very heart of Yonkers.

Step back in time and experience an evening very much like the one George Washington and Mary Philipse encountered on Valentine's Day so many years ago. Colonial re-enactors, demonstrations of authentic music and dance and period-inspired refreshments are all part of this enchanted evening. 

Tickets are $35 for members of the Friends of Philipse Manor Hall and $45 for general admission. be a witness to this delightful story. Space is limited. 

Yonkers First Lady Mary Calvi, author, six-time Emmy award winning journalist and CBS 2 News This Morning and News at Noon anchor, will give a talk on the research she conducted for her book, Dear George, Dear Mary: A Novel of George Washington's First Love.
