The bestselling authors of "The Personal Librarian" are back with Target’s 2023 Book of the Year, "The First Ladies," by Marie Benedict & Victoria Christopher Murray. "The First Ladies" is a novel about the extraordinary partnership between First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and civil rights activist Mary McLeod Bethune — an unlikely friendship that changed the world — from The New York Times bestselling authors of the Good Morning America Book Club pick, "The Personal Librarian." This is the story of two different, yet equally formidable, passionate, and committed women, and the way in which their singular friendship helped form the foundation for the modern civil rights movement.
