    “Irrepressible: The Jazz-Age Life of Henrietta Bingham” with Emily Bingham

    Raised like a princess in one of the South’s most powerful families, Henrietta Bingham was offered the helm of a publishing empire. Instead she ripped through the Jazz Age like an F. Scott Fitzgerald character and became the relative no one wanted to talk about. That is, until her great-niece discovered trunks filled with nearly 200 love letters, a first edition of Virginia Woolf’s “The Years” and a court ensemble once owned by the 1930s shorts-wearing rebel tennis star Helen Jacobs. Book signing to follow.

    This irresistible lecture and slide presentation examines the life of the Harlem-loving jazz baby that shattered taboos while seducing some of the most fascinating figures of her time. Author Emily Bingham is the great-niece of Henrietta Bingham, and was born in Louisville, Kentucky into a journalism family.
