About the Book and Author
Susan Vreeland is the internationally-renowned author of art-related historical fiction such as Clara and Mr. Tiffany, Luncheon of the Boating Party, and Girl in Hyacinth Blue.
She returns later this summer with "three artists, three generations, three wars, eight paintings, one of the most beautiful villages in France, a woman, and the men who surround her, a heartache, a vow, a mystery, a search, and a list."
Lisette's List takes place in Roussillon, in Provence, the south of France. Pascal, a former miner of ochres, finds his life purpose in providing ochre pigments to painters in Paris, and makes frames in exchange for paintings. His grandson André hides Pascal's collection just before he leaves to fight in World War II, while André's wife, Lisette, whose deepest yearning is to participate in the art world of Paris, must remain in Roussillon to retrieve the paintings.
Event is free and open to the public and registration is not necessary.
