Art Talk and Book Signing: Debra Dean, Hidden Tapestry: Jan Yoors, His Two Wives and the War That Made Them One

October 27 at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Debra Dean Hidden Tapestry: Jan Yoors, His Two Wives and the War That Made Them One

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.

Free for museum members; $10 for non-members. RSVP HERE or call 954-262-0258.

Book signing immediately following talk. Books may be purchased in the Museum Store.
