Description:  
Life Downstairs,
British Servant Culture

with
Prof. Ann McClellan
While servant narratives have been popular for centuries, there seems to be a resurging interest in these stories in recent decades. Many contemporary British and North American writers, filmmakers, and television executives have turned to master/servant relationships as their subject matter.     Films like The Remains of the Day and Gosford Park garnered numerous Oscar nominations and substantial box office profits. PBS created such classics as Upstairs, Downstairs and Manor House, as well as the phenomenally successful Downton Abbey!
Join Ann McClellan as she explores the history behind the rise and fall of British servants and why Americans are so fascinated by their stories on page and screen.

Description:  
 
The Friends of the Library book discussion topic will be "Blood and Thunder: An Epic of the American West,"
by Hampton Sides.

Whether or not Kit Carson as an individual was motivated by the concept of Manifest Destiny is unclear. But, Sides paints a picture of an illiterate who spoke five languages, an “Indian fighter” who had two Native American wives, a military officer and an exceptional tracker whose instinctual knowledge and love of the western landscape was unrivaled among white settlers and explorers.

This meeting was rescheduled from July 15.
Extra copies will be available for advance reading.

Life Downstairs
Life Downstairs,
British Servant Culture

with
Prof. Ann McClellan
While servant narratives have been popular for centuries, there seems to be a resurging interest in these stories in recent decades. Many contemporary British and North American writers, filmmakers, and television executives have turned to master/servant relationships as their subject matter.     Films like The Remains of the Day and Gosford Park garnered numerous Oscar nominations and substantial box office profits. PBS created such classics as Upstairs, Downstairs and Manor House, as well as the phenomenally successful Downton Abbey!
Join Ann McClellan as she explores the history behind the rise and fall of British servants and why Americans are so fascinated by their stories on page and screen.

The Friends of the Library book discussion topic will be "Blood and Thunder: An Epic of the American West,"
by Hampton Sides.

Whether or not Kit Carson as an individual was motivated by the concept of Manifest Destiny is unclear. But, Sides paints a picture of an illiterate who spoke five languages, an “Indian fighter” who had two Native American wives, a military officer and an exceptional tracker whose instinctual knowledge and love of the western landscape was unrivaled among white settlers and explorers.

This meeting was rescheduled from July 15.
Extra copies will be available for advance reading.
