An Evening with Clai
An Evening with Claire McMillan, Author of The Necklace
Hudson Library & Historical Society

Wednesday, Aug. 15, 7 p.m.
or call (330) 653-6658.
Join Claire McMillan for a discussion of her latest book, The Necklace, which tells the fictional story of two generations of the Quincy family and their connection to a mysterious family heirloom. The story, partially set in Cleveland, was inspired by the travel journals of Amasa Stone Mather. Kirkus Reviews called the book, “a complex and compelling narrative that balances intensity and levity.  Written with wit, compassion, and a meticulous attention to period and cultural detail." 

McMillan is the author of The Necklace and Gilded Age, which was inspired by Edith Wharton’s House of Mirth. She is the 2017-18 Cuyahoga County Writer-in- Residence and currently serves as a member of the board of trustees of The Mount, Edith Wharton's home in Lenox, Massachusetts. She practiced law until 2003 and then received her MFA in creative writing from Bennington College. She grew up in Pasadena, California and now lives on her husband’s family farm outside of Cleveland, Ohio, with their two children.

Copies of The Necklace will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of the Learned Owl Book Shop. Register for this free program online at hudsonlibrary.org or call (330) 653-6658 x1010.
