Join us for an evening with Christina Baker Kline, author
of A Piece of the World (2017), about the relationship

Kline interweaves fact and fiction in a powerful novel
that illuminates a little-known part of America’s history.
Bringing into focus the flesh-and-blood woman behind the
portrait Christina's World by Andrew Wyeth, she vividly
imagines the life of a woman with a complicated
relationship to her family and her past, and a special
bond with one of our greatest modern artists. A special
thanks to HarperCollins Publishers. Thanks also to the
members of the Artword Bound Book Club, CCAC. This event
will be held at the Carroll Arts Center, 91 West Main
Street, Westminster, Maryland. Admission is $20 and
