The Life and Career of Manchester's "Sweater Queen"

Longtime residents of Manchester may remember a large, stylized sign in the mill district, for Pandora sweaters, one of the area's biggest operations. A recent documentary tells the story of Pandora and of its longtime owner, May Gruber. It’s called “Sweater Queen.”

Nancy Beach is producer of the film, which is screening later this week in Manchester. She tells All Things Considered host Brady Carlson about May Gruber's life and career.

"Sweater Queen" is screening Thursday, July 12th at 7pm at Temple Adath Yeshurun in Manchester.
