Coffee & Conversation with author STEPHEN MAITLAND-LEWIS, moderated by award winning talk show host PAM ATHERTON


Botticelli's bastardMr. Maitland-Lewis will discuss and sign his latest book, Botticelli's Bastard.

Art restorer Giovanni Fabrizzi is haunted by an unsigned renaissance portrait. Obsessed to learn the truth of its origin, he becomes increasingly convinced the painting could be the work of one of history's greatest artists. He believes the portrait was stolen during the greatest art heist in history--the Nazi plunder of European artwork. Giovanni persists in his quest of discovery and exposes far more truth than he ever wanted to know.

Books will be available for purchase and autographing.
