The Lost Sketchbook of Edgar Degas by Harriet Scott Chessman. Ten years after Edgar Degas’ 1872 visit to New Orleans, a lost sketchbook surfaces. His Creole cousin Tell – who lost her sight as a young woman – listens as her former child-servant describes the drawings and reads Degas’ enigmatic words. It’s both cryptic and revelatory, leading Tell to new understanding of her marriage, her brilliant cousin, her daughter, and herself. With discussion leader Marsha Meyer.
