Artist and Author Marjorie Price to Speak

Marjorie’s recent memoir, A Gift From Brittany, (Gotham Books, 2008, Paperback edition, 2009) tells about the years she lived in France and was married to a volatile French artist. There, she had the extraordinary experience of becoming a part of an ancient village in Brittany and of forging a friendship with an elderly, illiterate peasant woman who changed forever the way she saw the world. In connection with the Frederick Reads event, Marjorie will be presenting her book at 2:00 PM on April 3, just prior to the opening of her exhibition.  She will answer questions and discuss the challenges and advantages of having the dual career of painter and writer.

Marjorie has worked as a graphic designer, taught painting to children and adults, has written short stories and essays and has published several children's art and education books. She continues to live and work in New York City.
