Join the AM Book Club to discuss Empty Mansions by Bill Dedman and Paul Clark Newell Jr. This novel reveals a complex portrait of the mysterious Huguette (Newell’s cousin) and her intimate circle. We meet her extravagant father; publicity-shy mother, Anna; star-crossed sister; French boyfriend; nurse, who received more than $30 million in gifts; and the relatives fighting to inherit her copper fortune. The book draws a rich portrait from conversations with Huguette, her personal papers, and the testimony of her inner circle. Updated with the outcome of the court battle for her estate, it tells an enthralling story of an eccentric of the highest order, a last jewel of the Gilded Age, who lived life on her own terms.  

We will meet at McIntyre’s Books, Wednesday, April 17, at 10:15 am. All residents of Fearrington Village and Galloway Ridge are welcome to participate, including new members. Questions?  Contact Cathy Clare, catfearr@gmail.com, or Carole Yardley, peacefulathome@bellsouth.net.
