Join us to discuss the December book club selection, The Map Thief by Michael Blanding.
Once considered a respectable antiquarian map dealer, E. Forbes Smiley spent years doubling as a map thief —until he was finally arrested slipping maps out of books in the Yale University library. The Map Thief delves into the true history of this fascinating high-stakes criminal and the inside story of the industry that consumed him.
Book club will begin with a presentation of historic maps, followed by a discussion of the book.
Free and open to all, pre-registration required.
