Members Art of Reading Book Club: The Glassblower of Murano


In 1681, the rulers of Venice ruthlessly protect their monopoly on the glass making of Murano, so when a master glass maker sells his methods to the Louis xiv of France, Corradino Manin knows he’s risking his life. Centuries later Nora Manin, a gifted artist as well, finds her famous last name places her in danger in the ancient foundries when timeless rivalries rise to the surface.
