September 6: Feast Your Eyes: A Novel by Myla Goldberg

In this new novel by New York Times bestselling author Myla Goldberg, the life story of fictional photographer Lillian Preston unfolds through a series of catalogue notes written for a Museum of Modern Art retrospective. Through the collaged narrative, we learn about Preston’s longtime quest to achieve artistic legitimacy despite cultural criticism, echoing the real-life experience of photographers like Sally Mann and Diane Arbus.

October 4: Foursome: Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O'Keeffe, Paul Strand, Rebecca Salsbury by Carolyn Burke

This biography charts the nuanced relationship between four important modern artists whose works have left a lasting impact upon American visual culture. While there are many legends circulating about this creative force, Burke cuts through the fiction to the true story of how each player stimulated the others’ ingenuity.

November 1: The Age of Light: A Novel by Whitney Scharer

Lee Miller—model, muse, photographer, pioneer. This historical fiction novel explores the opportunities and sacrifices experienced by the artist, who began her career in Paris as the Surrealist artist Man Ray’s model and assistant.
