Join us for a conversation between writers Edmund de Waal and Adam Gopnik to celebrate the launch of de Waal's Letters to Camondo, the highly anticipated follow up to his 2010 bestseller, The Hare with Amber Eyes. This collection of imaginary letters from Edmund de Waal to Moise de Camondo reveals the captivating and ultimately tragic story of the banker and art collector who settled in 19th-century Paris, creating a spectacular house, now the Musée Nissim de Camondo, and filled it with an incredible collection of French 18th-century art. The 50 letters in this new work are deeply personal reflections on assimilation, melancholy, family, art, the vicissitudes of history, and the value of memory.
