eSpotlight - Revisiting Downton Abbey
Since the trailer was released for the upcoming Downton Abbey movie, I've been counting down the days until the movie's release on September 20. We're just a little over a month away so let's take a look at all the fun eBooks, eMedia, and eResources we have related to this excellent TV series that's soon to be a film as well.
The World of Downton Abbey
Explore the world of Downton Abbey with a behind the scenes look at the series in an eAudiobook narrated by Elizabeth McGovern, the complete scripts for Season Three, or a documentary on how the cast and crew made the show so authentic for its time period.
Or how about trying a recipe from the series or its time period? You can even read philosophical essays on Downton Abbey and the historical events that happen in the series.
The Music of Downton Abbey
Love the music of Downton Abbey? Hoopla has a few different soundtrack collections for you to choose from.
The Real Downton Abbey
Highclere Castle is the real life Downton Abbey and the Countess of Carnarvon has written books on the history of the Carnarvon family and their home. Or you can read the book that inspired Julian Fellowes to create the character of Flora, Countess of Grantham on Downton Abbey. Or how about the memoir of a "downstairs" maid in 1930s England?
