Velma is going to a party. She’s been at the rooming house for several weeks, shocked to move in with all those other women. Extra girls, spinsters, they refer to themselves as singles or ‘new women’ though not one of them is new. The first reaction of course should always be a safe retreat. She’d lived in a flock before. But it was time to meet what was beyond the rooming house, and several library people would be there. A pretty party hat would help her keep her courage up. Something with a little eccentric flair lest she seem staid. Now the decision was made, a twinge of giddiness crept in and made room for more. She couldn’t wait.
