Coffee & Tea by the Book

E-mail Print

Cover Image of  'My Mrs. Brown,' by William NorwichIn-person registration for Garden City Public Library cardholders begins on Tuesday, June 13 at 9:30 AM at the Reference Desk of the Library for the next "Coffee & Tea by the Book" discussion. The program will be held on Tuesday, June 27 on the First Floor of the Library in the Periodical Room at 9:30 AM sharp.

Librarians Laura Flanagan and Ann Garnett will moderate a discussion of My Mrs. Brown, by William Norwich. Emilia Brown is a hardworking widow who makes a modest living cleaning at Bonnie’s Beauty Salon in Ashville, Rhode Island. Quiet by nature, she has known her share of sorrows and persevered. When she offers to assist with the inventory of the estate of a local grande dame, Mrs. Brown discovers an Oscar de la Renta black sheath and jacket dress that changes her life forever. From the moment Mrs. Brown sees the dress, she is possessed by the desire to purchase one for herself. Thus begins Mrs. Brown’s challenge to save enough money to be able to travel to New York City and buy the dress. As Mrs. Brown navigates the path to her dress, the motivation for her quest unfolds and the dignity and devotion of her deeply personal mission becomes clear.

We encourage attendees to bring or wear an article of clothing or an accessory that carries the same sort of emotional resonance for them that Mrs. Brown’s dress does for her.

You can pick up a copy of the book when you register at the Reference Desk. You are welcome to bring your own coffee or tea. Registration is limited to 25 Garden City Public Library cardholders. Non-Garden City Library cardholders may register in person beginning June 21 if space is available.
