“The True Story of the World’s Largest Unsolved Art Theft,” The Gardner Heist by Ulrich Boser is a fascinating account of a brazen and amazing criminal act—a book that could help police and investigators solve the mystery of the 1990 break-in and burglary at Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. “A tantalizing whodunit” (Boston Globe) and a “riveting, wonderfully vivid account [that] takes you into the underworld of obsessed art detectives, con men, and thieves” (Jonathan Harr, author of The Lost Painting), The Gardner Heist is true crime history at its most spellbinding.”
Join fellow art and book lovers for casual, engaging literary discussion at the Artful Readers Book Club. Each month, we’ll gather in the Michael Victor II Art Library at the Springfield Art Association to discuss an art-related book.
October’s discussion will center around Ulrich Boser’s “The Gardner Heist”. Light refreshments will be provided. Please feel free to attend even if you have not read the book!
The Artful Readers Book Club is free and open to anyone age 21 or older, but registration is appreciated. To RSVP, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
