GR Reads kicks off this summer with a blockbuster event on Tuesday, June 19th at 7:00pm. Don’t miss best-selling author Elizabeth Kostova as she talks about writing her most recent novel, The Swan Thieves. This book was inspired not only by her great love of paintings, but also by her interest in the lives of painters. Drawing on her experience of writing and researching The Historian, she worked to recreate in The Swan Thieves several different places and periods. The novel travels back in time to 19th-century France and pivots on a series of love letters from the late 1880s. Once The Swan Thieves gets fully underway, it becomes a braid of three narratives set in the present, the recent past and the late 1870s.
