Little Mountain Author Clair McMillan restyled "The House of Mirth" to Cleveland Heights in her first novel "Gilded Age" and brought Gatsby-esque "The Necklace" to Gates Mills in her second. In her latest work of historical fiction, "Alchemy of a Blackbird", Clair explores themes of surrealism, mysticism and friendship. The Friends are indeed privileged to welcome Clair bact to our members' Annual Dinner.
