A Year in the Life of Downton AbbeyJessica Fellowes, bestselling author and niece of “Downton Abbey” creator Julian Fellowes, will discuss and sign copies of her book "A Year in the Life of Downton Abbey."

It's 1924 and there have been many changes in the world of Downton Abbey since we were first welcomed by the family and their servants twelve years ago. A generation of men has been tragically lost at the front, there are once again children breathing new life into the great house, a chauffeur now sits at the Grantham dinner table and hems are up by several inches.

Yet despite all of this unsettling upheaval, it is a comfort to find that many things at Downton remain largely unchanged. There are still parties to be thrown, summer fetes to be organized, menus to be planned and farms to be run.

Fellowes explores the seasonal events and celebrations of the great estate—Christmas, Easter, the debutante season, the hunt and more – and illustrates the lives of favorite characters, the actors who play them, and those who create the beloved world of Downton.
