Northshire Bookstore and the Southern Vermont Arts Center are thrilled to present Christine Coulson, author of an enchanting novel that shows us the Met Museum that the public doesn’t see, in conversation with Met curator Kim Benzel.

“Every painting, every tapestry, every fragile, gilded chair in the Met not only has a
story, but gets to tell it, in Christine Coulson’s magical book. The history, humor, wonder, and—perhaps above all—beauty that Coulson absorbed in her twenty-five years at the museum burst forth from these pages, in her wry and imaginative tales of the people and objects that make the Met all that it is.”

—Ariel Levy, staff writer for The New Yorker and New York Times bestselling author of The Rules Do Not Apply
