Book Chat: Letters to Camondo by Edmund de Waal

Nov 14, 2021 4:00 pm

Join the discussion of this beautiful, intimate book about the Musée Nissim de Camondo in Paris and the patriotic Jewish family who donated this treasure house of decorative art to France. Letters to Camondo reflects on many profound topics – Jewish migration and identity, France’s treatment of Jews during World War II, and the impulse to collect and cherish objects of art. The book’s author, Edmund de Waal, is a world-famous ceramicist whose previous books include the international bestseller, The Hare with the Amber Eyes.
