Join Cathy & John Bates (not THAT John Bates!) in the genteel setting of the Isham-Terry House for an afternoon tea. The Bates will display their extraordinary collection of Victorian fans, to be complemented by a lesson in the language of the fan. Compare the lives of Julia & Charlotte Isham to those of the Crawley Sisters, who came of age at the same time. Hats & white gloves welcome, but not required. Registration required at 860.247.8996 x 11 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
