The Collector’s Apprentice: A Novel, by B.A. Shapiro

Welcome to Museum Reads, the Newport Art Museum’s Art-Themed book group for adults. It’s the same beloved Read/Eat/Chat book group format, with a fresh name. Join us!

The author takes us into the world of art, glamour, and mystery. We will be transported to Paris in the 1920’s, a world of  artists and expats, including post-Impressionist painter Henri Matisse and writer Gertrude Stein. This is an unforgettable art thriller!


We are very pleased to announce that author B.A. Shapiro will join our conversation.
