Cummer Beaches is starting an art-related book club for this coming year. The club will meet quarterly, and its goal is to discuss books that complement current or upcoming exhibitions at the Cummer Museum. The first meeting will be at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 and is for members of the Cummer Beaches. There is no attendance fee.
The first meeting will feature a general discussion on the topic of art forgery and art theft. The recommended focus book is The Art Forger by B.A. Shapiro. However, book club participants may choose to read any book related to the general topic of art forgery or art theft. Listed below are samples of a number of books in this general category:

  1. The Art Forger: B.A. Shapiro
  2. The Gardner Heist: Ulrich Boser
  3. The Forgers: Bradford Morrow

These books are available on Amazon, Kindle, and, in many cases, the public library. For further information, please contact Maurice Shuman at 904.982.1340 or at mauriceshuman@hotmail.com.
