The Burbeen Free Lecture Series hosts The Art Forger author B. A. Shapiro as part of Woburn Reads 2014. The author will appear at the Joyce Middle School Auditorium, 55 Locust Street, on Thursday, March 20, at 7 PM. Doors open at 6:30.
Ms. Shapiro will discuss The Art Forger and answer questions you may have about the book or her writing process. After the question and answer section of the program, the author will be available to sign books. Books will be available for purchase.
Barbara Shapiro is the author of six novels, four screenplays, and one non-fiction
book. In her previous career incarnations she has directed research projects for a
residential substance abuse facility, worked as a systems analyst/statistician, and served as an adjunct professor teaching sociology at Tufts University and creative writing at Northeastern University. She acknowledges that she likes being a novelist the best.
Under the direction of art teacher Nancy Borelli some Joyce Middle School students have been studying the masterpieces stolen from the Gardner Museum, creating their own “forgeries.” View their stunning masterpieces at this event.
Woburn Reads 2014 was funded by donations made to the Friends of the Woburn Public Library in memory of Sheila Joyce Greenlaw.
