If you have not yet had a chance to catch a screening of the Chasing Portraits documentary, I'm excited to share that you can now pre-order the documentary from Amazon! Of course don‘t forget to read the book before you catch the film. The two are companion pieces. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Y97FK4Y/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_WUHVDbV5BZB6Y

Good book further telling about lost and looted artworks during WW2. This book focuses on the author‘s search for her great grandfather‘s art. Very detailed - I felt as if I was sitting with Ms. Rynecki and hearing the story.

Erynecki 😊Hope you get a chance to see the film! 4mo
Laura317 @Erynecki If it comes near Knoxville, TN, I will go! 4mo
Erynecki @Laura317 Sadly, it did, but over a year ago. We screened at Clayton Center for the Arts in Maryville in November last year as part of the Southern Circuit tour. But stay tuned, it should be available on DVD and Amazon later this year. 4mo
Laura317 I will look for it on Amazon. If you happen to see it before me, please let me know! @Erynecki 4mo

This book has been in my Kindle #TBR ‘stack‘ for a couple of years now. 📚📚😬📚I bought it for the true crime & Pacific Northwest setting. Linda Hazzard (known as the “Starvation Doctor”) claimed that starvation diets & other treatments were a #Remedy for a number of diseases & medical complaints. She took their money & slowly starved people to death at Wilderness Heights, her Olalla, WA sanitarium in the early 1900s.

BookNAround There‘s a great Stuff You Missed in History Class (I think) podcast episode about this. 4mo
Chrissyreadit My favorite murder also has a podcast episode. The book is in my kindle TBR. I can‘t believe how much that woman got away with! 4mo
Hooked_on_books It‘s good! Very disturbing. 4mo
arlenefinnigan Wow. Disturbing. 4mo

Looking forward to this book! I‘ve always been interested in the art and monuments that were destroyed or stolen by Nazis and opportunists. This book is written by a Litten, and tells how one determined woman works to get her great-great grandfather‘s art back.

Cinfhen I‘ve been wanting to read this book. I‘m also interested in the history of the looted art 4mo
Erynecki Happy reading! 📚😊 4mo
kspenmoll I really loved another memoir about trying to find & reclaim his family‘s looted art 4mo
Cinfhen I‘ve seen the film @Laura317 and loved it and I‘ve read The Orpheus Clock and thought it was really good. The personal family history was so interesting/ I would recommend as well. Good call @kspenmoll 4mo

Went with a little fun non-fiction this time. It was a fun little book and taught me a lot about princesses I didn't even know existed and some new facts about those that I did know. #audiobook #scribd #historicalnonfiction #princess #royalty

One word .....painful. I'm not sure if the story didn't hold enough or the author was that bad but my God this drug on and on.
Do yourself a favor and skip this it's just torture.
