Michelangelo’s David: a World Art Week virtual Adventure featuring art historian and USA Today bestselling author Laura Morelli

April 20, 2023 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM


About the Event

Michelangelo’s David, a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture, was created in the early days of the 16th century, and today it stands as one of the most recognized works of art in the world, a symbol of strength and youthful beauty. But what is David’s story, and what makes it a pivotal work for the history of western civilization?

Lucky for us that art historian and USA Today bestselling author Laura Morelli is in the house, because her novel, The Giant, tells us the story behind the art, which Laura has agreed to share with us in a multi-sensorial slide show presentation.

Please join us for this important conversation about the role art plays in our world today. Your Adventure includes a signed paperback copy of The Giant, admission to the Zoom event, a fascinating slide show presentation about David, and discussion with the author.


Signed books are included with your event admission and will be shipped directly to you. Feel free to purchase additional gift copies below, all of which will include signed bookplates.



For event admission, simply select the David Event Registration (4/20/23) below and we will send you a Zoom link a few days prior to the event to access the virtual session.
