Moi & Marie Antoinette



Big Hair and Little Dogs: The World of the Young Marie Antoinette -- a special afternoon event to be hosted by the High Museum of Art on Sunday, May 13 at 2:15 p.m. Lynn Cullen, author of Moi and Marie Antoinette, will give a kid-oriented presentation on court fashion and etiquette. Her book is a whimsically illustrated account of Marie Antoinette, told from the perspective of her pug dog, Sebastien, beginning with Antoinette's life at age 13. The author will also sign books from 1 to 2 p.m. and 3 to 4 p.m. Event is free with Museum admission.

BTW: While at the High, don't forget to see the amazing collection of furniture and decorative accessories that once belonged to the French kings and queens. These pieces will be on view through September 2.
