NBACE Tuesday Book Club @ Howland-Green

A collaboration with the New Bedford Arts & Cultural Emporium (NBACE) at Kilburn Mill!

In the Full Light of the Sun by Clare Clark, a historical novel set in the 1920's and based on a true story. A young art student, an art expert, and an art dealer end up involved in a scandal surrounding the discovery of thirty-two previously unknown paintings by Vincent Van Gogh that turn out to be fake.

Location: In-person in the Meeting Room at Howland-Green Branch Library & virtually on Zoom (link to join: https://tinyurl.com/2exj3m2f).
