Lecture and Book Signing: To Marry an English Lord
Sunday, December 15th at 2:00 pm
Preppy Handbook author Carol McD. Wallace lectures on the American heiresses like Anna Gould who went to Europe and traded their wealth for titles. She chronicles the wealthy papas, pushy mamas and beautiful daughters who made this happen. From the wheeling and dealing to the lavish weddings, and the titles. What attracted English lords to American women, included their magnificent wardrobes and well-rounded educations that only plenty of money could buy, plus their animated personalities, prettier looks, and better teeth (Were they looking for wives or a stable of horses?) Wallace will sign her book To Marry and English Lord, which helped inspire Downton Abbey, following her talk.

This spirit is brought to life to life in this adaptation, which takes place throughout the Lyndhurst mansion. Working from Dickens’ actual scripts, actor Michael Muldoon tells the well-loved tale as guests travel throughout the mansion “meeting” the different spirits and characters. The performance is approximately 90 minutes and is appropriate for all ages. Come see the words of Dickens in a historic period setting!
