The last book club meeting, on Tuesday the 8th, was held at The Brick House at Shelburne Farms. It is part of the Shelburne Museum and an incredible Colonial Revival home overlooking the lake. It was restored by Electra Havemeyer Webb and J. Watson Webb in the early 1900s. We had a tour of the home, a fabulous dinner in the formal dining room, and then a discussion of the book by Edith Wharton, “House of Mirth“. Here  is Christine with her summer hat on!
