Design for Stained Glass Window Inspired by Emily Dickinson's Poem "There is no Frigate like a Book"
Connick, Charles J.
Cartoon of window made by Charles J. Connick in 1939 for the Newtonville Library (Newtonville, MA) based on Emily Dickinson's poem, "There is no Frigate like a Book." The Newtonville Branch Library suffered a fire in the 1980's. The building was renovated and eventually became the Newton Senior Center on October 24, 1993. The window is still in the same location as of 2012. // INSCRIPTION: There is no frigate like a book/ to take us lands away. // JOB FILE: 2112.
