edwardianMissing Downton Abbey? Historian Judith Krall-Russo will be at Verona Public Library to fill the void! On Sunday, January 29 at 2:30 p.m. there will be a special presentation on what life was like in an English manor house during the Edwardian era (both upstairs & downstairs!).

The critically acclaimed TV Series Downton Abbey renewed popular interest in the Edwardian era, when King Edward VII reigned in the United Kingdom. It was a time of great disparity between the haves and the have-nots. Wealthy aristocrats owned huge manor houses and reveled in luxury, leisure, and extravagant entertaining. This “Golden Age,” which was a reaction to the Victorian era, perched on a shaky foundation as the winds of change brought a time of greater social mobility within the rigid British class system.

Come learn about this fascinating time and the people who lived in it. Light refreshments will be served. This program is sponsored by Friends of the Verona Public Library.
