Wednesday April 17, 2013
Join us every third Wednesday of the month at 11 am, from September to June, for a discussion led by a MIL staff person. This year's theme is the world of artists in fictional novels. You can pick up a copy of this month's title at the Circulation desk.
This month's title: Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland.
"It's 1893, and at the Chicago World's Fair, Louis Comfort Tiffany makes his debut with a luminous exhibition of innovative stained-glass windows, which he hopes will honor his family business and earn him a place on the international artistic stage.
"But behind the scenes in his New York studio is the freethinking Clara Driscoll, head of his women's division. Publicly unrecognized by Tiffany, Clara conceives of and designs nearly all of the iconic leaded-glass lamps for which he is long remembered. Clara struggles with her desire for artistic recognition and the seemingly insurmountable challenges that she faces as a professional woman, which ultimately force her to protest against the company she has worked so hard to cultivate." -Random House
