Altadena Public Library Presents “The Secret of Marie” with Author Rebecca Bricker

Author Rebecca Bricker, a former Altadena resident, will present her historical novel The Secret of Marie, on Tuesday, April 26th at 7:00 p.m. in the Barbara J. Pearson Community Room of the Main Library.

An art-history mystery set in Monet’s Giverny, The Secret of Marie weaves a modern-day love story with the romantic tale of American Impressionist painter Theodore Robinson and his favorite model — a woman known only as Marie, who has perplexed art historians for years.

The presentation will include a slide show and tips for those interested in visiting Giverny. Rebecca also will share a significant discovery she made in a museum vault that sheds new light on the mysterious Marie.

Rebecca’s previous books are a memoir entitled Tales from Tavanti: An American Woman’s Mid-Life Adventure in Italy and a novel, Not a True Story. She currently lives in Florence, Italy.

The Altadena Library is located at 600 East Mariposa Street, Altadena. For more information please call (626) 798-0833. For a schedule of events, visit the library on the web at
