Benchley Round-up in Lowell, Massachusetts

To Benchley, Parker, and Wodehouse fans:

I have arranged for a private tour of the American Textile History Museum, including the special exhibit noted below, for Sunday, May 22nd, at 3:00 p.m. The cost will be $100 for up to ten persons ($8 per person after re reach ten). My guess is that we may attract 7 or 8 total, so that would make it around $13 or $14 per person.

Grace and Glamour: 1930s Fashions
In the 1930s, graceful cuts and glamorous fabrics replaced the boxy, boyish styles of the previous decade. In the face of economic hardship, people embraced the streamlined shape, elegant styles and newly invented fibers of a hopeful modernism. This exhibit shows dresses and accessories typical of this extraordinary decade.
