We are very excited to bring Carol Wallace, author of Leaving Van Gogh, to our authors’ series this fall. Her book centers on Vincent Van Gogh’s relationship with his doctor towards the end of his life. Carol’s talk will focus on the relationship of art and mental illness, as well as the art itself.
Carol is the great-great-granddaughter of Lew Wallace, author of the novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, which was first published in 1880 and has been updated for modern audiences by Carol. She has written more than twenty books, including most recently, Leaving Van Gogh. She is the coauthor of the New York Times bestseller To Marry an English Lord, an inspiration for Downton Abbey. She holds degrees from Princeton University and Columbia University.
