Reading Florence Broadhurst
I've finally begun reading Florence Broadhurst: Her Secret & Extraordinary Lives, from Chronicle. If you've read the book -- or want to -- let me know. In August it might be interesting to have an online book club discussion. With Broadhurst's complicated life story, and the mystery surrounding who really designed her vibrant Asian-inspired wallpaper, there is plenty to talk about.
