Exciting news for Downton Abbey fans in the United States!

Exciting news for Downton Abbey fans in the United States!  This February, The Countess of Carnarvon of Highclere Castle (the spectacular setting of Downton) will be visiting a few states to promote her latest book, Lady Catherine and the Real Downton Abbey.  On her blog, Lady Carnarvon mentions a couple of different stops on her tour, including one in Nashville, TN, just before heading to Virginia; I have not been able to find a more detailed tour schedule listing, however.  Colonial Williamsburg will be hosting two events with Lady Carnarvon on February 9th & 10th.  You can join her for tea on February 9th at the Williamsburg Lodge to hear her speak about Highclere and its past inhabitants.  And February 10th she will speak about life at Highclere at the DeWitt Wallace Museum in Williamsburg.  A book signing will follow the lecture.  You can find further information and purchase tickets online here.  If anyone has heard about additional stops on her book tour, please let us know so we can post those here as well!

The second of the Countess' books will be the subject of her
upcoming book tour in the U.S.

Don't forget about the upcoming exhibit of fabulous Downton Abbey costumes at Winterthur, starting March 1, 2014!
