Jacqueline Widmar Stewart

Jacqueline Widmar StewartSince high-school days in Indiana, French language and literature have held a fascination for Jacqueline Widmar Stewart, who studied at the University of Colorado as an undergraduate and gained her Master of Arts degree in French at the University of Michigan and earned her Juris Doctorate at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. Her first book, The Glaciers’ Treasure Trove: A Field Guide to the Lake Michigan Riviera, delves into the geologic and philanthropic histories of five parks at the southern tip of Lake Michigan near Chicago, especially the little-known Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Her second book, Finding Slovenia: A Guide to Old Europe’s New Country, published in Ljubljana and in its 5th printing, showcases the natural wonders of her grand-parents’ native land. More recently her two books: Parks and Gardens in Greater Paris and Champagne Regained have been published by Editions Axel Menges, Stuttgart, Germany. A new French-language edition of Parks and Gardens in Greater Paris will be published by the year's end.
