Independent scholar David Nelson Wren will bring to life Ardrossan, the last great estate on the Main Line in this presentation on his sumptuous book on the estate and the Montgomery family who lived in it. The family and estate provided the inspiration for the legendary film "The Philadelphia Story" starring Katharine Hepburn, whose character was based on Helen Hope Montgomery Scott, the sparkling socialite. Mr. Wren comes to the library after his 20-year labor of love researching and writing his book.
Location: Skyline Room, Parkway Central Library, 1901 Vine Street, Philadelphia
