The Buzz is back! Join us every Wednesday at 11 a.m. for weekly informal chats by the Welcome Desk. Princeton Public Library staff members will discuss books, films, technology, apps, articles, and music that we think you should have on your radar. It's also a chance to share what you've been reading, watching, or listening to. Looking for your next favorite novel? Want to spread the word about an amazing documentary? Come on by. We promise you'll leave entertained and in-the-know on all things buzz-worthy.
Just in case you can't make it to the library, you can view our weekly Buzz lists and follow us on Twitter (PrincetonPL), where we'll be live-tweeting most sessions so that you can get in on The Buzz anywhere, anytime!
Here is a recommendation to give you a taste of what we'll be talking about this fall:
"The Art Forger: A Novel" by B.A. Shapiro
(publishes October 23)
Over two decades ago, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston experienced one of the largest art heists in history. Thirteen works by luminaries such as Rembrandt, Degas, and Vermeer were stolen, never to be seen again. Author Shapiro has written a literary thriller that imagines what happens when a young artist struggling to make a name for herself becomes entangled in the aftermath of this epic heist. Introducing a dark and secretive industry of forging, collecting, and stealing art, Shapiro ensures the reader comes away with a great understanding of all the facets of the painting world. If you enjoyed Steve Martin's "An Object of Beauty", this one is for you.
