Summer at Tiffany


Former chair of USD’s Department of Fine Arts Marjorie Hart’s memoir, Summer at Tiffany, has just been released in paperback. Reviews of the book, which documents Hart’s summer job in 1945 at the iconic jewelry store, have been stellar. “Remarkably, this winsome memoir was written 60 years after that giddy summer spent pinching pennies and dreaming of diamonds,” says Booklist. “The 82-year-old author’s memories have been polished smooth over the course of six decades,” enthused Kirkus Reviews.
