In Conversation with B.A. Shapiro on The Art of Fiction: Portraying the Visual Arts with the Written Word

B.A. Shapiro is a favorite guest at Fountain!   We are extremely fond of her.

Owner of Fountain, Kelly Justice will be interviewing Shapiro in an informal setting with plenty of time for audience questions and participation.  

Join us for an evening of conversation about art, art history, and writing.  

  • How does one convey the power of visual images in words?  
  • What liberties and limitations are present to writers portraying actual historical persons and events?  
  • Shapiro's career did a hairpin turn midway through.  How did she push through that into an entirely new chapter?
