LPI Book Club meeting
“Art Lover, A Biography of Peggy Guggenheim,” by Anton Gill is this month’s choice of the Lake Placid Institute Book Club, which will meet at the Lake Placid Library at 7 p.m., Monday, January 28. Ms. Guggenhiem, was left a small fortune at a young age after her father went down on the Titanic. She soon relocated to Europe, moving about with the American expat group of bohemian writers and artists of the day. She has been dubbed by some as the “mistress of modern art” but was equally well known for her colorful and scandalous life style.
The LPI Book Club usually meets 7 p.m. on the last Monday of the month to discuss books about arts and architecture. All are invited to join in the discussion or to come just listen.
