Book Club: Florence Broadhurst



I'm thrilled by the response to my online book club proposal. Why don't we start discussing Florence Broadhurst: Her Secret & Extraordinary Lives on Monday, August 13?

That sounds like an excellent plan to me. I have just ordered a copy of this book and will take it with me on my trip to Chicago for reading on the plane. What a great idea!!!!!! ....an on-line book club.

I picked up the book today and started reading it at lunch. It is starting out like a Sherlock Holmes mystery. What a character she was.

Laura said...

Yes! I'm excited for the book club...great idea.

This lovely book is worth buying just to hold it - with its fabric-like cover.
Check out the juxtaposition in the feel of her designs - at times otherworldly & classic and then bordering on PurpleHazePsychodelic.....brilliant. Period.
Cheers, Alison
