Signing Table: Karel Lucander

Frances Dodge was a curiosity. A wealthy automotive heiress who knew how to throw a party and show off her fashion acumen – then ditch the fancy duds the next day for her equestrian gear. Her wealth was born out of tragedy, and tragedy plagued her throughout her life, even as she ascended into the highly competitive worlds of horse shows, harness racing and high society.

In Riding on the Edge: Frances Dodge and Dodge Stables, biographer Karel Bond Lucander recounts the story of Frances Dodge, exploring the many tragedies and triumphs of this true American heroine.
