Franklin_The Lioness of Boston_CoverJoin us for a book talk with author Emily Franklin, who will discuss her latest book, The Lioness of Boston.

The novel is based on the life of Isabella Stewart Gardner, a daring visionary who triumphed over personal tragedy and created an inimitable legacy in American art and transformed the city of Boston itself.

Publishers Weekly described the novel as, “A vivid narrative…brims with pitch-perfect period details…cannily captures Isabella Stewart Gardner’s ambition, independence, and quirks. Fans of strong female protagonists and Gilded Age historicals will enjoy this.”

Emily will also discuss her research process and will take questions from the audience.
Copies of The Lioness of Boston will be available for sale and signing. Cosponsored by Breakwater Books.
