Debra Dean, author of the New York Times bestseller The Madonnas of Leningrad, will discuss her latest book Hidden Tapestry: Jan Yoors, His Two Wives, and the War That Made Them One
Hidden Tapestry reveals the unforgettable story of Flemish American artist Jan Yoors—childhood vagabond, wartime resistance fighter, and urban bohemian. At the peak of his fame in the 1970s, Yoors’s photographs and vast tapestries inspired a dedicated following in his adopted Manhattan. Though his intimate friends guessed the rough outline of his colorful life, Hidden Tapestry is first to detail his astonishing secrets.
