The Twenties are the New Sixties
Posted by: Karen Kleckner Keefe

coolidgeWhether it’s the Downton Abbey effect, worries about an uncertain economy, or a hike in spring hemlines. the 1920s are all the rage. Don’t believe me? A book about Calvin Coolidge is on the New York Times Bestseller list! I rest my case. (But if I needed to persuade you more I’d remind you that Baz Luhrmann’s lavish remake of The Great Gastby is coming to the screen later this year.) Help your patrons explore the Roaring Twenties with a blend of classics from the day and modern takes.
