Marjorie Post and The Book You Must Read if You Are a Soon to Be Etiquette Expert

Marjorie Post on Etiquette and Social Graces

For etiquette experts, Marjorie Post’s life is a masterclass in the art of social graces and influence. 

This has been one of my favorites books so far in 2024.  I did not want it to end.

I have had the pleasure of touring two of her homes.  Hillwood located in Washington DC and Mar -a – Lago in Palm Beach, Florida.

The story of her life is a fascinating journey, especially for those of us with a passion to teach etiquette and social graces.
