Product Description

 AUTOGRAPHED COPY! Under Glass: The Girl with a Thousand Christmas Trees by Jen Hirt

"According to Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders, when she went back to Ohio, her city was gone. For Jen Hirt, her Strongsville, Ohio greenhouses were gone.” So reads the back of the dust jacket of Hirt’s new book, Under Glass: The Girl with a Thousand Christmas Trees. The book is a memoir of her childhood growing up in her family’s legendary greenhouse at the corner of Pearl Road and Royalton Road in the heart of Strongsville, now the home of a CVS pharmacy.

Under Glass traces the rise and fall of the family’s four-generation business—and, the dust jacket adds, “the family itself.” The story is honest and poignant, taking the reader on an inspiring journey from early memories of life in the greenhouse, to their ultimate demolition, to the rebirth of the family business on the internet. To Hirt, 35, who now teaches writing at Penn State Harrisburg, the greenhouse is a metaphor for life. “Glass,” she says, “always breaks.”
