If you like tatler magazine, you’ll probably like this too, sans the snark. six highborn sisters rocking it in interbellum england, untill ww2 tests and divides their loyalties. deepened my believe in nature over nurture. not a novel. better than fiction. in the background another great house long lost to its original owners. living it up is expensive. #bookrecommendation #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookstagram #instabook #bookphotography #reading #booklover #midfordsibilings #midfordgirls #marylovell #deborahdevonshire #nancymitford #unitymitford #dianamitford

Thanks to all who joined us for our solstice library of change exchange this wednesday!
.
reeling from news of traumatised south american children at the texan border, we grappled with questions about how to be effective in leading change at systemic and personal levels, social justice, movement-building, power dynamics, history, family, finding wonder and joy in the present moment despite life's tragedies, vulnerability, the relevance and power of poetry and art to the general public, and our relationship to chaos and uncertainty.
it was a deep and nourishing conversation which left us with much food for thought, and overflowing hearts.
the book list we discussed was:
.
a time for new dreams, ben okri
.
your silence will not protect you, audre lorde
.
the interestings, meg wulitzer
.
@consenteduk magazine's resistance issue
.
a scandalous life: the biography of jane digby, mary s. lovell
.
daring greatly, brene brown
.
a field guide to getting lost, rebecca solnit
.
i've got the light of freedom, charles m. payne
.
the story of lesley gault, william trevor
.

For weekend @globestyle, i consider a few new biographies of places and how they reflect the lives of famous residents—on screen in real life and in the popular imagination. coco chanel’s la pausa villa, starring the plaza, the lavish decor for jetset guests at maxine elliott’s château de l’horizon in the riviera set, and the unfinished palazzo, about the holy trinity of flamboyant eccentricity who occupied the palazzo dei leoni in venice: luisa, marchesa casati, doris castlerosse, and peggy guggenheim [column at link in bio]

Officially my last 'beach read' of the season. should be titled "the excessive antics of the very rich and very beautiful". love & hip hop and the real housewives franchises are amateurs compared to this extravagant reality show. get your copy today and bask in a little more summer splendor.

A book about the six, eccentric mitford sisters was always going to be fascinating. they couldn't have been more different and mary lovell perfectly captures their contrasting personalities and interests.
each sister was a headlines grabber, ranging from a best selling novelist, wife to oswald mosley (leader of the most popular british fascist movement), one was a close pal of h****r and one became the duchess of devonshire. altho my fave sister was jessica who ran away to fight fascism in the spanish civil war and later became best friends with maya angelou.
shamelessly sympathetic to the sisters, i would absolutely recommend 'the mitford girls' as a fascinating insight into one of britain's most infamous socialite families.
