Seven of us met in the Teen Room this past month to discuss Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland. It was a good discussion. We started off looking at examples of Louis Comfort Tiffany’s art glass windows and lamps that were central to the book. If you are interested in feminist history, art history and turn of the century New York, then pick this book up.
There was not a lot of discussion of other books this month, with the exception of Defending Jacob by William Landay. This is the second or third time that this book has come up, so it must be a good one.
And talk eventually turned to Downton Abbey as it always does in the library these days.
Join us for the March discussion of Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James, when murder and mystery meet Jane Austen’s fictional world of Pride and Prejudice.
