‘Fashions in Fiction’ coming to library

The Friends of the Needham Public Library will present "Fashions in Fiction with Kandie Carle" on Sunday, January 21, at 2:00 p.m., in the Library’s Community Room.

This program is a delightful show-and-tell on the clothing of Regency England as reflected in Jane Austen’s fiction. The event will include dressing "Elizabeth Bennet" and "Mr. Darcy" for an evening event, and readings from Austen’s letters and novels. While dressed in authentic Regency attire, Carle will give a detailed overview of the clothing of the Regency Era (early 1800s) for both gentlemen and ladies. She will then share excerpts from Austen’s personal letters as well as passages from some of the novels, highlighting the author's use of clothing and fashion to define character and class, enhance story line, and develop plot points.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Needham Library. For further information, call (781-455-7559, option 2).
