Library Program: First Ladies' Fashions

Posted by Friendseglibrary

Friends of the East Greenwich Free Library Present: First Ladies' Fashions January 20, 1pm, East Greenwich Free Library. Free and open to the public.

Clothing historian Karen Antonowitz will examine the fashions worn by first ladies, from Martha to Melania - those who changed contemporary fashion, followed it or had no effect on it at all. In this illustrated program she will explain how the fashions worn by first ladies reflected our society and the history of the time. From Martha Washington to Melania Trump, the styles worn by our presidents' wives have fascinated Americans.

The program begins at 1 pm at the East Greenwich Free Library at 82 Peirce Street. Light refreshments will be served. Free and open to the public.

The Friends of the Library is an all volunteer association. The mission is to promote Library services and programs. The vision is for all to enjoy the Library as a community learning and gathering place. For more information about the Friends, email or visit
