Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris, Week 1

Welcome to Week 1 of the Online Book Club discussion of Mrs Harris Goes to Paris.

The Online Book Club, if you've never joined us before, is a book discussion group that takes place entirely online. Each week, I write a new blog post that talks about different aspects of the book, and you can interact directly with me and other readers by leaving your comments. Check back each week and see what new topics we're talking about.

Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris is the story of a housekeeper who decides that she really needs a couture dress from Paris. Specifically, she wants a Dior dress. Throughout the story, Mrs. Harris saves and schemes to get the dress, and then, finally, she's able to travel to Paris. The story takes hilarious twists and turns, but Mrs. Harris stays true to herself and her mission regardless of her surroundings. 

If you want to follow along with us but you aren't interested in reading the book, you can always watch the movie version starring Leslie Manville. Check out the trailer above if you want to get a feel for the movie. Feel free to still leave comments on the blog posts, even if you're only watching the movie and not reading the book.

We'll read the first 5 chapters for next week, so make sure you read through that before joining us. I can't wait to hear from you in the comments section.
