Staff Reading Pick
Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.
Book: THE ART FORGER
by B. A. Shapiro
Recommended by: Lois
I can't stop thinking about THE ART FORGER by B. A. Shapiro. If you're a fan of mysteries set in the art world mixed with a bit of romance and history, this book is for you! Blacklisted artist Claire Roth makes a living copying classic paintings for a reproduction company. Then one day her dream of a one-woman show in a fabulous gallery seems within her grasp. She'll get her reward if she's able to fool museum professionals and re-create a stolen painting by Degas. Not just any painting but one from the still unsolved 1990 art heist at Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. (If you're a curious person, you'll read up on quirky, rich Isabella and the famous art theft that's background for this story.) What would you be willing to do to secure the one thing you most desire? Claire's quest kept me turning those pages.
