absolutely a real deal offbeat book


Martha and Mary Magdalene, c.1598 by Caravaggio 

In a novel that alludes to Mary the Magdalene throughout, and contains a few qualms with the Catholic Church and a prostitute who has to find her own passage to redemption redeem herself, I cannot help bad add some classic Caravaggio to this post.

Great talk last week. It was so wonderful to see a couple of new faces to go along with the usual suspects!

An invite to our annual Winter Party is on its way!
