March book club for grown ups

by Dawn Tripp
In 1916, Georgia O’Keefe is a young, unknown art teacher when she travels to New York to meet Alfred Stieglitz, the famed photographer and art dealer, who has discovered her work and exhibits it in his gallery. Their connection is instantaneous. O’Keefe is quickly drawn into Stieglitz’s sophisticated world, becoming his mistress, protege, and muse, as their attraction deepens into an intense and tempestuous relationship and his photographs of her create a sensation. Yet as her own creative force develops, Georgia begins to push back against what the world is saying about her and her art. And soon she must make difficult choices to live a life she believes in.
Georgia conveys O’Keefe’s joys and disappointments, rendering both the woman and the artist with keenness and consideration.” –– The New York Times Book Review
