Special Book Club Meeting at the Farnsworth House

Read BROKEN GLASS, by Alex Beam, then join us for a book discussion and tour at the Farnsworth House. The book tells the true story of the intimate relationship that gave birth to the Farnsworth House, a masterpiece of twentieth-century architecture. Ultimately, however, the relationship disintegrated into a bitter feud over love, money, gender, and the very nature of art. Free, but registration is required and space is limited. Books are available at the lower level Checkout Desk. More information will be provided at the time of registration.
