EventKeeper : Tell a Friend

Book Club

Thursday June 9, 2022
2:00 PM until 3:00 PM


Join us for a discussion of the book The Barbizon Hotel by Paula Bren.

New book club members are always welcome. Request a copy of the books online or at any SCPL location.

The Barbizon tells the story of New York's most glamorous women-only hotel, and the women-both famous and ordinary-who passed through its doors. World War I had liberated women from home and hearth, setting them on the path to political enfranchisement and gainful employment. Arriving in New York to work in the dazzling new skyscrapers, they did not want to stay in uncomfortable boarding houses; they wanted what men already had-exclusive residential hotels that catered to their needs, with daily maid service, cultural programs, workout rooms, and private dining.
