CAMS Book Group: Stoned: Jewelry, Obsession, and How Desire Shapes the World

Monday, April 24, 7-8 pm, Chicago Avenue & Main Street Branch

World history is explored through objects. What makes a stone precious? Why are some so desirable, and others just rocks? Starting with the Dutch and the beads that bought Manhattan through post WW I, this rich history is full of tales that make you question what you thought you knew about jewelry. Copies are available at the branch. Please stop by, or call (847)905-0764 to reserve yours.
