Ginny Cowan will lead a discussion on The Gown by Jennifer Robson. The book begins in 1947 London where two young women who work at the fashion house creating Princess Elizabeth’s wedding gown are assigned to do the embroidery. The novel then moves to 2016 Toronto where Heather Mackenzie discovers embroidery samples left to her by her late grandmother along with a photo of a famous artist and holocaust survivor. Heather travels to London to learn more about the story behind the embroidery and these two very special women.
