July 2014

Our July pick is Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland.  This historical novel follows the life of Clara Driscoll, an artist who worked for the Tiffany Glass company in 1893.  At the time, she was not given credit for much of her work and struggled personally with relationships, knowing that Mr. Tiffany did not employ married women.  This novel is an interesting look at life during that time, the struggles for women, and differences in class. 

Book discussion will take place on Monday, July 21st at 6:30 p.m. in the First Amendment Room in Eldridge.  Books are available now.
