B.A. Shapiro - The Collector’s Apprentice

Art Fraud, Theft, Scandal, Murder, & Revenge, a Historical Fiction Book Talk & Signing

B. A. Shapiro is the New York Times bestselling author of The Muralist and the award-winning The Art Forger. Shapiro will discuss and sign The Collector's Apprentice ($15.95 Algonquin Books), a historical art thriller about a woman determined to prove her innocence and recover what was stolen from her family.

Accused of helping her fiancé steal her family’s fortune and her father’s art collection, Paulien has fled to France and created a new identity. Paulien, aka Vivienne, takes a position working for an American art collector modeled after real-life eccentric museum founder Albert Barnes and quickly becomes caught up in the 1920s Paris of artists and expats. From there, she sets out to recover her father’s art collection, prove her innocence, and exact revenge on her ex-fiancé.
