Peggy Post, Emily Post Institute

Peggy Post, Emily Post’s great-granddaughter-in-law, is a director of The Emily Post Institute and the author of more than a dozen etiquette books.

We met and talked during the Texas Book Festival; she was in town to give a talk and to sign the Institute’s latest book, Emily Post’s Etiquette, 18th Edition: Manners for a New World, which had just come out four days before we spoke.

We met in a congressional meeting room, which is underground, in the extension of the Texas State Capitol building. It’s a maze of hallways, nooks and crannies down there, and when she arrived a few minutes late she was a bit flustered by it all, but bounced back quickly.

She’s a petite, attractive, middle-aged woman with bright eyes and a warm smile. She’s demure, but it’s obvious she’s no pushover.

Peggy is co-author of the 18th edition of Emily Post’s Etiquette, published in October 2011.
