Let's read "Carnegie's Maid" with the @FulcoLibrary Online Book Club

All Day


Have you always wanted to join a book club, but couldn’t find the time? The Fulton County Library System has a new online option for you!

The online book club is a private moderated online forum where community members discuss books and network with each other. Members participate according to their schedule – day or night. The group will spend approximately two months on each book, so there is plenty of time to read.

The next session of the book club will start on August 5th. Club members typically read two chapters per week, so you can join at any time without falling behind.

Sign up at to join the group for the next book discussion, Carnegie's Maid by Marie Benedict.

Clara Kelley is not who they think she is. She's not the experienced Irish maid who was hired to work in one of Pittsburgh's grandest households. She's a poor farmer's daughter with nowhere to go and nothing in her pockets. But the other woman with the same name has vanished and pretending to be her just might get Clara some money to send back home.

If she can keep up the ruse, that is. Serving as a lady's maid in the household of Andrew Carnegie requires skills he doesn't have, answering to an icy mistress who rules her sons and her domain with an iron fist. What Clara does have is a resolve as strong as the steel Pittsburgh is becoming famous for, coupled with an uncanny understanding of business, and Andrew begins to rely on her. But Clara can't let her guard down, not even when Andrew becomes something more than an employer. Revealing her past might ruin her future -- and her family's.

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

There is no cost to participate. Free eBooks, books and audiobooks are available for patrons of The Fulton County Library System.
