Meryl Carmel: “Finding Kate”

Date: May 16, 2019
Time: 7:00 PM
Location: Bernardsville Library

When Meryl Carmel took a walk at Natirar one afternoon in 2007, she never thought it would lead to ten years of research tracking down the little-known story of Kate Macy Ladd, a Gilded Age heiress who opened a convalescent home for women at Natirar where she lived with Walter Graeme Ladd, her husband of almost fifty years. She was influential as a philanthropist in many health-related areas during her life and also afterwards through the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation. Ms. Carmel will talk about her book, how she came to write it, and about its subject, Kate Macy Ladd. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Free.
