International Literature Book Club

On Monday, Feb. 4th, at 7 p.m., downstairs at 52 Prince Street, join the International Literature Book Club, led by Sarah McNally. We will discuss Tell Them of Battles, Kings, and Elephants, by Mathias Énard, translated from the French by Charlotte Mandel. 

In 1506, Michelangelo--a young but already renowned sculptor--is invited by the Sultan of Constantinople to design a bridge over the Golden Horn. The sultan has offered, alongside an enormous payment, the promise of immortality, since Leonardo da Vinci's design had been rejected: "You will surpass him in glory if you accept, for you will succeed where he has failed, and you will give the world a monument without equal."
