11:00 - 12:00 pm - Book: Venice: A New History by Thomas F. Madden

The city of Venice, with its grand canals, distinctive architecture, and romantic charm, has held a continuous allure for artists and travelers over the centuries. Renowned historian Thomas F. Madden shares compelling insights and highlights famous figures in?Venice.?The book is a monumental work of popular history that’s as opulent and entertaining as the great city itself. For this discussion we will focus on the later chapters of the book (14-19), from the Renaissance to modern day.  

Join Hyde staff and volunteers for an in-gallery book discussion of the rich history and artistic allure of Venice.  There is a copy of the book at Crandall Public Library, and it can be purchased at Northshire Books in Saratoga Springs.
