eSpotlight – Keeping up with the Bridgertons

Bridgerton premiered on Netflix on December 25, 2020 and quickly became one of Netflix's most watched series. This series from producer Shonda Rhimes is based on a series of romance books by author Julia Quinn. I've been a fan of the books for several years but I was also thrilled to see the Netflix series make inspired changes and add diversity to the cast and show. The much anticipated second season of the series will be arriving on Netflix on March 25, 2022. Take a dive back into the world of Bridgerton with these eBooks and eResources.
