What I'm reading Wednesday...

I set aside the rather difficult book from last week, when my library emailed me that a book that had been waitlisted was available for download to my Kindle.

Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland.

This is a fictionalized account of Clara Driscoll, a stained glass artist who supervised the women who worked for Louis Comfort Tiffany.  The author made use of multiple collections of Clara's actual letters when writing this novel.

I'm still in the very beginning, and I'm finding the descriptions of the art glass process and the lives of working women at the turn of the twentieth century very interesting.
