From Uptown Girls to Downton Abbey

May 19, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Meeting Room B


Join Anglophile and former UK resident, Claire Evans, as she talks about the British aristocracy, and their “fortune hunt” for cash-flush, Gilded Age (1870’s to 1900) American socialites who were willing to trade their family’s money for an ancient title, and often a chilly reception into the British titled nobility.

Tea and “biscuits” will be served.

Virtual Program – Space is limited. Contact the Reference Desk to sign up to join us in Room B or pre-register to view from home via ZOOM.
