Christina Baker Kline Author Talk and Book Signing
New York Times bestselling author Christina Baker Kline will give a short reading from her new book, A Piece of the World, and share the true story behind the novel, which focuses on Christina Olson, the model for Andrew Wyeth’s iconic painting, Christina’s World. Using personal and archival photographs and images, Kline will discuss the wide-ranging cultural impact of the painting, her inspiration to write the book and the challenges she faced along the way in turning real people’s lives into a fictional narrative. Copies of Kline’s new book will be available in the Museum shop. The talk will be followed by a book signing and reception.
Kline is the author of five novels including Orphan Train, which has spent more than two years on the New York Times bestseller list.
