We invite you to meet Emily Franklin, author of more than twenty novels and a poetry collection, at a luncheon on December 6. She will discuss her new novel, The Lioness of Boston.
Her award-winning work has appeared in the New York Times, Boston Globe, Guernica, JAMA, and numerous literary magazines and has been featured on NPR and named notable by the Association of Jewish Libraries. A lifelong visitor to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, she lives outside of Boston with her family, including two dogs large enough to be lions.
“The Lioness of Boston is a treasure trove of art, sensuality, Boston history, and more. Emily Franklin has captured Isabella Stewart Gardner’s blazing life and the light it sheds on the lives of women then and now.”—Rachel Kadish, author of The Weight of Ink
The Lioness of Boston “is the best kind of novel—at once a deft page-turner and a thrilling love story about a woman’s passion for an independent life—it will sear your mind, break your heart, and leave you forever changed.” —Dawn Tripp, author of Georgia
