The Ringling Museum Library book club, The Literati, will be reading and reviewing the new book Lady Almina and the real Downton Abbey: The lost legacy of Highclere by the Countess of Carnarvon. Historic houses at the turn of the century are of special interest to us, as we have our very own on the Ringling estate, the Venetian palazzo Ca’d’Zan.
Our book club will have it’s inaugural meeting on January 4th, 2013,
from 10am-12pm. Books can be purchased at the museum shop. Admission to the museum not required. Please meet us in the Library. You may download our Lady Almina discussion guide here.
See you there!
