The Bookstore is pleased to announced that it has selected the book for the Fourth Friday Coffee Talk on February 25th: Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland.
Pick up the book (at a 10% discount), enjoy the read, and then join Margie and Sue for a drop-in discussion at The Bookstore between 10am and Noon on February 25th. We'll be serving complimentary coffee.
Margie and Jane have already finished it, and really enjoyed it. Historical fiction fans, and especially Susan Vreeland fans will love it. It's based on the true life of the woman who designed Tiffany lamps in turn of the century New York City. You'll learn a lot about the artistry of stained glass, and the obstacles that working women had to overcome in order to pursue a career in those times. You'll never look at stained glass the same again.
We happen to think Clara and Mr. Tiffany would be a great choice for your own next book club. You could plan a trip to the Smith Museum of Stained Glass at Navy Pier in Chicago to see some spectacular Tiffany stained glass windows from the New York studios in the book. Check out this Navy Pier website for some beautiful photos.
Hope you can join us for our Coffee Talk! No RSVP necessary, just stop by.
