EAM/EPL Book Discussion | "The Glass Room," by Simon Mawer

Tuesday, August 21, 2018 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Join us for a conversation about “The Glass Room”, New York Times bestselling novel and short-listed for the Man Booker Prize. The book tells a tale of a recently married couple, who commission a German architect to build a modern house in Czechoslovakia but have to flee it because of World War II. The fictional Landauer House is based on the Villa Tugendhat built by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The modern masterpiece embodies a “less is more” design with a transparent glass room as its center. As the house changes hands, each new inhabitant falls under a spell from the extraordinary idealism and aura of the glass room.
