Event Details

Join best-selling author Ross King in conversation with the AGO’s Alexa Greist for a conversation about King’s latest rich gripping history, The Bookseller of Florence, a story of rivalry, new technology and the finest illuminated manuscripts known to history, all set against a Renaissance Florence backdrop. The Bookseller of Florence brings to light an extraordinary story about the city and its culture--that of Vespasiano da Bisticci. His bookshop in the heart of Florence was a gathering place for the city's most prominent poets and philosophers, and it was there that Vespasiano and his team of scribes created beautiful illuminated manuscripts for their clients, a cast of powerful popes and wealthy European princes.
