This week at the library...

WEDNESDAY
August 27

Buena Vista branch
7:00 p.m.

Coffee and Conversation, with…
STEPHEN MAITLAND-LEWIS

Mr. Maitland-Lewis will discuss and sign his latest book, Botticelli's Bastard.

Art restorer Giovanni Fabrizzi is obsessed with an unsigned Renaissance portrait. He becomes convinced the painting could be the work of one of history's greatest artists, stolen during the greatest art heist in history--the Nazi plunder of European artwork during World War II. Using magical realism and historical fiction, the author weaves together centuries of conflict and conquest, familial bonds stretched and broken, the heartbreak associated with deeply felt losses through death and destruction, and the possibilities of redemption and reconciliation.

Books will be available for purchase, and the author will autograph.
