Join us at Old Capitol Books to celebrate Jacqueline Widmar’s new book Champagne Regained.
Since high-school days in Indiana, French language and literature have held a fascination for Jacqueline Widmar Stewart, who studied at the University of Colorado as an undergraduate, gained her Master of Arts degree in French at the University of Michigan and earned her Juris Doctorate at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California.
All of the author’s books celebrate triumphs in conservation. In 2011 Edition Axel Menges issued her third book, Parks and Gardens in Greater Paris. Her second book Finding Slovenia: A Guide to Old Europe’s New Country, published by Mladinska knjiga in Ljubljana, concerns the history and culture of her grandparents’ homeland. Her first, The Glaciers’ Treasure Trove: A Field Guide to the Lake Michigan Riviera, explores the geologic and philanthropic history of the five parks at the southern tip of Lake Michigan near Chicago, including the National Lakeshore.
