Event description
Russell Shorto brings to life the story of Jo van Gogh-Bonger.

About this event

Vincent van Gogh is one of the most famous artists of all time, yet few are aware that his legacy was secured through the efforts of an extraordinary woman. Author Russell Shorto brings to life the story of Jo van Gogh-Bonger, Vincent's sister-in-law, who persevered through personal tragedy, sexism, and self-doubt to cement his place in history. Read more about Jo van Gogh-Bonger in Shorto's recent NYT piece.

Russell Shorto's most recent book, Smalltime: A Story of My Family and The Mob is available through the Brown Bookstore (use Promo Code EVENT10 for 10% discount) and other local independent booksellers.

Russell Shorto is the bestselling author of The Island at the Center of the World, Amsterdam, Revolution Song, and Smalltime, and a contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine. He lives in Cumberland, Maryland.
