Have you read the books or seen the movie about American Girl's Felicity? (It's okay if you haven't!) Felicity was modeled on a girl who lived in Virginia during the time of the American Revolution, which took place way back in 1776.
Our friend Ms. Janine is coming to the library on Thursday, November 6th at 6:45 pm to present an American Girl Craft Night. Ms. Janine will talk a little about Felicity's time period and then show us how to make our own tussy wussy, which is a kind of silk flower bouquet that was popular in colonial times. Learning how and why crafts were made long ago helps us understand what it was like to grow up as girls like Felicity did. Plus, it's really fun!

Note: Afternoon Program
The popularity of the BBC series Downton Abbey has sparked our interest in the Edwardian era, when King Edward VII reigned over the United Kingdom. This 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. The rich expected their every whim to be indulged, and all their daily needs to be fulfilled, by the less-fortunate souls who served as their domestic servants.
Known as "The Golden Age," the Edwardian period began in the late 19th century. Its foundation was shaken in the 1910s as the winds of change brought a time of greater social mobility within the once-rigid British class system.
Come learn about this fascinating time and the people who lived it. You don't need to be a Downton Abbey fan to enjoy this interesting historical presentation!
