Chavez Book Club
Cesar Chavez Central Library

Tuesday, Nov. 5, 10:30:am (Tuesdays, October 22 & November 5, 10:30 am)
Our selection for November is The Passion of Artemisia by Susan Vreeland.

From extraordinary highs - patronage by the Medicis, friendship with Galileo and, most importantly of all, beautiful and outstandingly original paintings - to rape by her father's colleague, torture by the Inquisition, life-long struggles for acceptance by the artistic Establishment, and betrayal by the men she loved, Artemisia was a bold and brilliant woman who lived as she wanted, and paid a high price.

You have two chances to join the discussion.  We meet mid-month to talk about the book while we're still in the middle of reading it, then again when we've finished it. We meet on the 2nd floor of the Chavez Library, near the new non-fiction book display.

Copies are available at the Customer Service desk.
