Get to know the fictional artist Harriet Burden, the subject of internationally acclaimed author Siri Hustvedt's recent novel "The Blazing World." Consumed by fury at the lack of recognition she has received from the New York art establishment, Burden hides her identity behind three male fronts who exhibit her work as their own. And yet, even after she has unmasked herself, there are those who refuse to believe she is the woman behind the men. Program is a partnership with the Elmhurst Public Library.
