The curator of Prints & Drawings at the Boston Athenaeum, Catharina Slautterback, invited me and two other writers to compose a piece inspired by the current exhibition. My piece is also part of a work in progress on John Singer Sargent & Isabella Gardner. The other writers are Newberry Award winner Jack Gantos, and NEA award winning poet Jill McDonough.
