"Raphael, Painter in Rome" Book Signing

July 24 

Friday, July 24

10 a.m. - 2 p.m., Garvan Pavilion

NOTE: Social Distancing will be required in the Pavilion space.

Stephanie Storey, bestselling author and Hot Springs native, will be reading, discussing, and signing her newest novel, Raphael, Painter in Rome. Stephanie’s debut novel, Oil and Marble, was hailed by The New York Times as “tremendously entertaining” and is now in development as a feature film by Pioneer Pictures. Her new novel–about the young, beautiful, brilliant painter of perfection, Raphael–is another art historical thriller that brings the giants of Renaissance art to life. Stephanie will give special readings of the work at 10:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m., followed by a brief discussion. There will be an opportunity to purchase the novel and have Stephanie personally sign your copy.

Event is free and open to the public. Regular admission applies to visit the Gardens
