This month, we will be discussing The Art Forger by B.A. Shapiro. Almost twenty-five years after the infamous art heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum—still the largest unsolved art theft in history—one of the stolen Degas paintings is delivered to the Boston studio of a young artist. As she begins her work, she starts to suspect that this long-missing masterpiece—the very one that had been hanging at the Gardner for one hundred years—may itself be a forgery. The Art Forger is a thrilling novel about seeing—and not seeing—the secrets that lie beneath the canvas.
The October meeting will be Monday, October 23rd. We will meet at Angela Steriopoulos’ house. Please contact her to RSVP and get directions, 203-966-9987.
