Artists’ marketing consultant, Alyson B. Stanfield, has started a Twitter group to discuss Lady Painter, the new biography of Joan Mitchell by Patricia Albers.
The Twitter book club is marked as #ladypainter. Stanfield is also hosting discussion about the book at her Facebook site. Author Patricia Albers has been invited to join Stanfield for an online conversation about the book later this month.
After downloading the book from Apple’s iBooks app, I plowed through it this weekend. Albers selects colorful verbs and very direct phrasing to emphasize her portrayal of this pugnacious and poetic painter. I’ll review Albers’ Joan Mitchell bio later this month, but for now I’ll just say it’s a gripping summer read, worth packing in the beach bag.
