Author Visit @ the Library

From date: 
Sun, 04/22/2012 - 2:00pm

Author Natalie Dykstra will be at the Library to talk about her book Clover Adams : A Gilded and Heartbreaking Life.

Marian "Clover" Hooper Adams, wife of historian Henry Adams, friend of Henry James and architect H. H. Richardson, was a well-educated Boston socialite, often considered the inspiration for Henry James's Daisy Miller and The Portrait of a Lady. But there's always been a mystery about her life and death. Why, less than 3 years after taking up an exhilarating, self-taught course of photography--and filling three albums with intensely personal photographs that showed feelings she could not otherwise express--did she end her own life at age 42 by drinking from a vial of potassium cyanide, a chemical she used in developing her own photographs?
