Description

In the library at 148 Charles Street, Boston, Massachusetts, the author Sarah Orne Jewett sits near the windows and the writer Annie Fields reads next to the fireplace. Fields, wife of publisher James T. Fields, led a literary salon in this house. They shared this home starting in the early 1880s. Many paintings and prints decorate the wall, and a piano fills the foreground of the image.
