Virtual Author Talk: Carol Orange & Her Take on The Isabella Stewart Gardner Art Heist

Tuesday, May 117:00—8:00 PMOnline

Nothing piques interest in the art world like a good heist! Join author Carol Orange as she discusses her book, A Discerning Eye, a fictional take on what might have happened during the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum heist all those years ago.

From Evgenia Peretz, Vanity Fair contributing editor and screenwriter:

"Through its loving and loveable protagonist Portia Malatesta, A Discerning Eye takes the reader on a journey that's both tense and wonderfully escapist. Carol Orange's rich knowledge of art history and powers of visual description demonstrated throughout elevate the adventure into the realm of John Le Carre-sophistication."

Carol Orange has worked in the art world for more than twenty years. She began as a research editor on art books in London and later became an art dealer in Boston. She has an MBA from Simmons University and worked as a marketing manager at the Polaroid Corporation. Along with concert pianist Virginia Eskin who played Chopin's music, she read excerpts from George Sand's novels in three salons at the French Library in Boston. Her short story 'Delicious Dates' was included in Warren Adler's 2010 short story anthology. Another story, 'Close Call,' appeared in the Atherton Review, Volume 02.
