Hear New York Times bestselling author Susan Vreeland speak about her latest novel, Lisette’s List, winner of the 2015 Art in Literature prize, awarded jointly by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the Library of Virginia. Set in the beautiful Provençal town of Rouillion, France, Lisette’s List tells the story of three artists, three centuries, and three wars and explores the power of art in helping us comprehend and make sense of the world.
