Wolfe has always loved nonfiction, reading prolific amounts of history throughout her time at Columbia Business School, during her marketing career, while raising a family, while pursuing fine arts studies at New York University, and during her time serving on the board of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society. Her previous book, Insubordinate Spirit, won the Washington Irving Medal for Literary Excellence. She lives in Greenwich with her family.

The Horseneck Chapter is the new Daughters of the American Revolution chapter in Greenwich. The Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 as a women’s service organization. Women become members to honor their heritage as well as make a difference in their community. DAR members come from a variety of backgrounds and interests. Still, all share a common bond of having an ancestor who helped contribute to securing independence for the United States of America. Any woman, 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible to join, this includes soldiers and those who aided the cause. Please contact horseneckdar@gmail.com with any questions.
