Description

Presented in association with Vaguely Sunny

We are delighted to host a talk by respected American author and historian Donna M Lucey - from Charlottesville, Virginia. Donna will visit the Island and the Club to tell us the fascinating story of the eventful and colourful life of Elizabeth Chanler, an American heiress to the Astor fortune. Elizabeth was orphaned while a student at Miss Elizabeth Sewell's school at Bonchurch and later had her portrait painted by the famous American painter John Singer Sargent. Donnas talk will especially focus on the years that young Elizabeth spent at school in Bonchurch.
