The Santa Clara City Library is sponsoring a talk and by local author Betsy Franco and her son and illustrator Tom Franco about their new adult book, “Naked”, on January 26th at 2pm in the Redwood Room of Central Library.
“When Jesse Lucas, a troubled, magnetic acting major, touches the sculpture Meditation in Stanford’s Rodin Sculpture Garden, he burns his finger on the bronze. By the time he returns to the garden that night, an eighteen-year old girl has emerged from the statue, naked and disoriented. It is 2008, yet her mind is swimming with vivid, fractured memo- ries of her volatile past in 19th century Paris—of serving as Rodin’s muse, of her passionate affair with the acclaimed artist, and of her own creations.”
Books will be available for purchase and signing. This program was funded by the Santa Clara City Library Foundation and Friends.
