Join fellow book lovers for a virtual Art of Reading Book Club featuring The Night Portrait: A Novel of World War II and da Vinci’s Italy by Laura Morelli. The book is an exciting, dual-timeline historical novel about the creation of one of Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous paintings, Portrait of a Lady with an Ermine, and the woman who fought to save it from Nazi destruction during World War II. Two women, separated by 500 years, are swept up in the tide of history as one painting stands at the center of their quests for their own destinies.
