The Historical Society of Plainfield will be hosting a “Chat and Chew” and book signing with local author, Rikki Lyn Hauss. Her book, “The Duchess of South Somerville”, discusses the life of New Jersey icon Doris Duke and recounts the efforts of local citizen volunteers who tried to save Ms. Duke’s favorite residence in Hillsborough NJ from demolition.
Join DHM for an afternoon of remembering Ms. Doris Duke, who used her vast inheritance to contribute to society as an entrepreneur and philanthropist. Other members of DORIS (Demolition of the Residence is Senseless) will be in attendance.
Refreshments will be served. Donations are always appreciated to support programming. Seating is limited and on a first-come first-served basis. Books will be available at $22.00 each.
