Book Discussion Group

Step into the world of “By Her Design” at Sheepshead Bay Library on February 23rd for an engaging book discussion!

This month, we’re diving into “By Her Design”, which tells the incredible untold story of how Ann Lowe, a Black woman and granddaughter of slaves, rose above personal struggles and racial prejudice to design and create one of America’s most famous wedding dresses of all time for Jackie Kennedy.

A Black designer who has fought every step of the way, Ann knows this is only one struggle after a lifetime of them. She and her seamstresses will find a way to re-create the dresses. It may take all day and all night for the next week to accomplish the task, but they will do it.

Time: 3:00-4:00 pm EST
