Christine Coulson, Author of Metropolitan Stories. Tuesday, April 28, Time TBA
Author Christine Coulson discusses her novel Metropolitan Stories. Described as a “surreal love letter” to the private side of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Metropolitan Stories unfolds in a series of amusing and poignant vignettes in which readers discover larger-than-life characters, the downside of survival, and the powerful voices of the art itself.
The result is a novel bursting with magic, humor, and energetic detail, but also a beautiful book about introspection, an ode to lives lived for art, ultimately building a powerful collage of human experience and the world of the imagination.
