“We’re going to focus on the Carnovan family and the events that went on there,” Chambon said. “We will go through the principal public rooms and the grounds, some of the support areas for Highclere. It will be interesting.”
Chambon, like many, has been drawn to the WWI-era drama written by Julian Fellowes due to its interaction between the high-class Crawleys and the servants who keep Downton going. There is also the drama of who will be the next Lord Grantham and will the house continue.
“First of all, Lord Fellowes has written a remarkable script and has a tremendous cast,” Chambon said. “It’s an era that is now gone, but it’s still fairly recent.”
Chambon said response to the presentation has been well received. Preregistration is suggested if one plans to attend. Please call the library at 254-4586 to register. Refreshments will be served.
