Evenings with an Author: Susan Ronald
March 13 @ 19 h 30 min - 20 h 30 min
Please join us for an evening with Susan Ronald, who will be speaking about her book, A Dangerous Woman: American Beauty, Noted Philanthropist, Nazi Collaborator— The Life of Florence Gould, available for sale after the event.
While researching her book Hitler’s Art Thief, biographer Susan Ronald came across the name of Florence Gould as a bidder on art stolen by the Nazis during the occupation of Paris. The name rung a bell for good reason: Gould was among the major benefactors of institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and New York University. Ronald was intrigued by this contrast, and the result is A Dangerous Woman, a meticulously-researched look at a complicated, seductive and utterly amoral woman operating in fraught political times.
Born and raised in the United States, Susan Ronald has lived in England for more than twenty-five years. She is the author of several books, including Hitler’s Art Thief and Heretic Queen.
