Tea time at Downton Abbey at the Kirkendall Public Library begins Friday, March 22nd at 2:00 PM and Sunday, March 24th at 2:00 PM with Season 1 Episode 1. Enjoy a cup of tea and a biscuit as you watch the PBS series Downton Abbey and discuss this stunning and colorful drama set around the aristocratic Crawley family and the staff which serves them. Set between 1912 and 1914, Downton Abbey chronicles the conflict of class, gender, and politics, and serves it up with a refreshing dollop of sizzle and scandal. Each week we will view and discuss a different episode. Each Friday and Sunday episode will be the same each week.
