Debut author Fiona Davis visits Wilton Library to discuss her novel, The Dollhouse. The novel pays tribute to New York City, past and present, and the women who’ve come to the Big Apple in search of a new beginning and a life to call their own. Using the Barbizon Hotel for Women as a backdrop, home to many well-known personalities from 1927 to 1981, including Lauren Bacall, Grace Kelly and so many more, Davis creates a suspenseful tale of two women – one from the 1950s and one from present day – whose lives become intertwined around a decades-old scandal. Fiona Davis is a journalist and former actress on and off Broadway. A graduate of the College of William and Mary and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, she is based in New York City. See the registration link for more details. Q&A and book signing will follow the talk. No charge. Registration highly recommended. Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Elm Street Books, New Canaan.
