Not Your Usual Book Club will meet on Zoom 
Thursday, July 16, at 3 p.m.

Please join moderator  Susannah Violino. for  a lively discussion of The Gown by Jennifer Robson. 

From the internationally bestselling author of Somewhere in France comes an enthralling historical novel about one of the most famous wedding dresses of the twentieth century-Queen Elizabeth's wedding gown-and the fascinating women who made it. With The Gown, Jennifer Robson balances behind-the-scenes details with a sweeping portrait of a society left reeling by the calamitous costs of victory. She introduces readers to three unforgettable heroines, their points of view alternating and intersecting throughout its pages, whose lives are woven together by the pain of survival, the bonds of friendship, and the redemptive power of love. - Publisher

Jennifer Robson is an academic by background, a former editor by profession, and a lifelong history nerd, who is now lucky enough to call herself a full-time writer. She has written five novels set during and after the two world wars: Somewhere in France, After the War is Over, Moonlight Over Paris, Goodnight from London, and most recently The Gown: A Novel of the Royal Wedding. She was also a contributor to the acclaimed anthology Fall of Poppies: Stories of Love and the Great War. Robson earned a doctorate in British economic and social history from St. Antony's College at the University at Oxford. She lives in Toronto, Canada, with her husband and children, and shares her home office with Ellie the sheepdog and her feline companions Sam and Mika.

The book is available to Norwalk library cardholders on HooplaOverdrive and in the library.
