Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
San Francisco MotherTalk with Santa Montefiore

No comments

Join Literary Reflections editor Caroline Grant and British writer Santa Montefiore on Sunday, April 22nd at 7:30 p.m.,for a reading and conversation about Montefiore's new novel, The Gypsy Madonna:

Elegant Anouk, a dealer in American antiques, dies leaving the Metropolitan museum an uncatalogued, multimillion dollar painting by Titian. Her son, Mischa, never even knew she owned it. This mystery sends him on the trail of his own history, back to that French village of his childhood. He expects to uncover the origins of the Gypsy Madonna; he never expects to find himself.

As with all MotherTalks, there's no need to read the book first, just come for good food, conversation, and pick up a signed copy at the event.
