How did young people become acquainted before the practice of dating became common? Let’s go back to Queen Victoria’s time with our hostess, Mrs. Michael Gordon as played by Rita Parisi. She will share memories of her own courtship during a time when a girl flirted with her fan, chose her own suitors, valentines proclaimed true love and romance was the rule rather than the exception. Victorian style dress is encouraged including hats and gloves. And don't forget to bring a fan and follow along as Mrs. Gordon demonstrates the language of the fan. Funded by the Friends of the Library.
