I Always Loved YOU

Thursday, March 12 @ 6:45pm

This month's read is I Will Always Love You by Robin Oliveira. Oliveira's new novel purports to be about the decade-long, convoluted, and complicated relationship between Mary Cassatt and Edgar Degas, yet it encompasses so much more-the relationships among other luminaries of the period, the difficulty of being a single woman and an artist in a harsh and often unforgiving male-dominated world, and the complexities of dealing with family. Reserve it!
