The Duluth Public Library hopes to bring folks from across the Northland together using just one book.
Library manager Carla Powers stopped by Good Morning Northland Wednesday to talk about the One Book, One Community program that begins this month.
This year's book is "Clara and Mr. Tiffany," by Susan Vreeland. It is a historical novel that follows a woman named Clara Driscal living in the late 1800s, Powers said. She worked for the legendary glass maker, Louis Comfort Tiffany. Powers said that many historians believe she is the one who came up with the idea to create stained glass lamp shades.
The author of "Clara and Mr. Tiffany," will be in Duluth to talk about the novel and her research on April 17. That begins at 7 p.m. at the Lincoln Park Middle School.
One Book, One Community is also sponsoring a tour of Duluth Tiffany windows on April 13. Documentary maker and local author Jack Salmela will conclude the tour at 11 a.m. at Pilgrim Congregational Church.
But events for the One Book, One Community program begin Monday, March 18, with a discussion on labor workers and women in the late 19th century.
