February 19th at 7:30 p.m. - Evening Book Discussion/Author Skype: Carnegie’s Maid by Marie Benedict

Join us on February 19 at 7:30 p.m. as we discuss Carnegie’s Maid by Marie Benedict. The author will join us by Skype!

Clara Kelley is not the experienced Irish maid hired to work in one of Pittsburgh’s grandest households. She’s a poor farmer’s daughter with nothing in her pockets. But the other woman with the same name has vanished, so Clara is pretending to be her . . . if she can keep up the ruse. Carnegie’s Maid tells the story of a brilliant woman who may have spurred Andrew Carnegie toward philanthropy.
