During First Thursday on June 6 // 7PM // Steiner Auditorium
We are pleased to welcome Robert M. Edsel, author of the nonfiction books Rescuing Da Vinci and The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History. His newest book, Saving Italy, follows two Monuments Men as they struggle to protect and save some of the world’s greatest treasures located in Italy, including works by Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. Last year, George Clooney announced he would write, direct, and star in the film version of Edsel’s book, The Monuments Men.
