It's the library in hangout mode! Join us on the third Tuesday of each month.

This month's title is The Gown by Jennifer Robson.

London, 1947: Besieged by the harshest winter in living memory, burdened by onerous shortages and rationing, the people of postwar Britain are enduring lives of quiet desperation despite their nation's recent victory. Among them are Ann Hughes and Miriam Dassin, embroiderers at the famed Mayfair fashion house of Norman Hartnell. Together they forge an unlikely friendship, but their nascent hopes for a brighter future are tested when they are chosen for a once-in-a-lifetime honor: taking part in the creation of Princess Elizabeth's wedding gown.

Copies of the print book will be available at the Circulation Desk. The eBook and eAudiobook are available now on hoopla. Click here for other available formats
