Join us as we welcome Denise Kiernan as she shares the fascinating true story behind the magnificent Gilded Age mansion Biltmore—the largest, grandest residence ever built in the United States.
We aren’t the only ones that are excited about The Last Castle:
Ms. Kiernan’s research is prodigious….she brings the place to life. And she doesn’t leave out the juicy bits from the family history: adultery, bankruptcy, suicide.”
– The Wall Street Journal
“The book’s vitality lies in the details [Kiernan] reveals about the architects, writers, artists and peers of the Vanderbilts who spent time at Biltmore.”
– The New York Times Book Review
This event is free and open to the public. Copies of The Last Castle will be available for purchase.
