Author Marie Benedict reads from her book, “Carnegie’s Maid” this April in the IAHC Library. In the industrial 1860s at the dawn of the Carnegie empire, Irish immigrant Clara Kelly finds herself in desperate circumstances.

Looking for a way out, she seeks employment as a maid in the home of the prominent businessman Andrew Carnegie. Soon, the bond between Clara and her employer deepens into love. But when she goes missing, Carnegie’s search for her unearths secrets and revelations that lay the foundation for his lasting legacy.

With captivating insight and stunning heart, “Carnegie’s Maid” tells the story of one lost woman who may have spurred Andrew Carnegie’s transformation from ruthless industrialist into the world’s first true philanthropist.

The reading is Wednesday, April 25 at 7pm and is free.
