A Violet Season by Kathy Leonard Czepiel
How much do you know about the violet industry? That’s right, the violet industry. Especially at the turn of the century leading up to World War I, those purple flowers with heart-shaped leaves were the flower of choice when it came to Valentine’s Day, Easter, and high fashion.
Go beyond the pages of Kathy Leonard Czepiel’s latest historical fiction, A Violet Season, and discover the inspiration behind the story of work on violet farms in the Hudson Valley. Czepiel will tour the state with Connecticut at Work to bring you the stories of a lost industry and the skills of creatively interpreting the backbreaking work of violet farmers.
