Book Group covers ‘The Art Forger’
MARQUETTE – The Peter White Public Library Book Group will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Dandelion Cottage Room to discuss “The Art Forger” by Barbara A. Shapiro.
Almost 25 years after the infamous art heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, one of the stolen Degas painting is delivered to the Boston studio of a young artist. Claire Roth has entered into a Faustian bargain with a powerful gallery owner by agreeing to forge the Degas in exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery. But as she begins her work, she starts to suspect that this long-missing masterpiece may itself be a forgery.
“The Art Forger” is a thrilling novel about seeing and not seeing the secrets that lie beneath the canvas. New members are welcome.
