Art Lovers Book Club: The Painter of Souls

June 21 at 4 PM The Painter of Souls by Philip Kazan

An extraordinary story of passion, art, and intrigue, this novel journeys to a time and place in Italy where desire reigns supreme and salvation is found in the strangest of places. Beauty can be a gift or a wicked temptation. So it is for Filippo Lippi growing up in Renaissance Florence. Not only can he see the beauty in everything, he can capture it through his paintings. To survive, Pippo Lippi, orphan, street urchin, budding rogue, must first become Fra Filippo Lippi, Carmelite friar, man of God. His life will take him down two paths at once.  Who is he really?

Hosts for this Event:
