La Grua Center to feature program on fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer

Stonington - The personal life of the late fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer was not as well known as her vibrant, colorful floral prints.

But on Saturday at 1 p.m., the La Grua Center Lecture Series in the borough will present a discussion by author Kathryn Livingston, who has written a biography of Pulitizer, whose designs have been popular for most of the past 50 years.

"In contrast to the high visibility of her brand, Lilly Pulitzer has largely kept her personal story to herself. Now Kathryn Livingston, former executive editor of Town & Country and five previous books, gives us the first full-scale biography of this rich, complex, extraordinary and closely-guarded life story. Livingston will offer insights into this fascinating achiever's world - the heartbreaks, the scandals, the challenges and personal courage to carve out a creative voice for herself," according to a press release from the La Grua Center.

The discussion is free and open to the public although donations are accepted.
