Florida author to visit Eagle Harbor Books

Bestselling author Debra Dean (“Madonnas of Leningrad,” “The Mirrored World”) will talk about her new biography, “Hidden Tapestry: Jan Yoors, His Two Wives, and the War That Made Them One,” at Eagle Harbor Book Company at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 19.

“Hidden Tapestry” reveals the unforgettable story of Flemish American artist Jan Yoors — childhood vagabond, wartime resistance fighter and urban bohemian. At the peak of his fame, in the 1970s, Yoors’ photographs and vast tapestries inspired a dedicated following in his adopted Manhattan. Though his intimate friends guessed the rough outline of his colorful life, “Hidden Tapestry” is first to detail his astonishing secrets.

A Seattle native, Dean is the author of four critically acclaimed books that have been published in 21 languages. Her debut, “The Madonnas of Leningrad,” was a New York Times Editors’ Choice novel, a No. 1 Booksense Pick, a Booklist Top Ten Novel, and an American Library Association Notable Book of the Year. It was long listed for the IMPAC International Dublin Literary Award.

“Confessions of a Falling Woman,” a collection of short fiction, won the Paterson Fiction Prize and a Florida Book Award.

A graduate of Whitman College and the MFA program at the University of Oregon, Dean lives in Florida with her husband, and teaches in the MFA Creative Writing program at Florida International University.
