Watch for It: Sisters of Glass

I'm a great fan of poet novelist Stephanie Hemphill. I've always recommended her work to rgz. So watch for this upcoming release titled Sisters of Glass. On the isle of Murano, two sisters, with different lives chosen for them by their father, negotiate to find their true calling and passion.

Maria, sworn to marry nobility, tries to turn from her love of glass and the newest glass blower in her family's business. Her older sister seeks to help Maria by sacrificing her own desires. The selflessness of two young women and their honest yearnings are beautifully woven in this upcoming verse novel. Watch for it!

One note: our own co-founder Dia Calhoun is the lettering artist for the cover. Seriously. :~)

That's fantastic, Charlotte! My daughter had an internship at the Glass Museum. Such a memory!
