Blue Bicycle Books, Charleston, SC Author Luncheon with Christina Baker Kline, A Piece of the World, Fri., Feb. 2, 12 pm Join us Fri., Feb. 2, 12 pm for lunch at High Cotton (199 East Bay St.), as Christina Baker Kline discusses her newest novel A Piece of the World (William Morrow, hb., 320 pp., $28). Tickets ($31) are available here. An instant New York Times bestseller, A Piece of the World delves into the relationship between the artist Andrew Wyeth and the subject of his best-known painting, Christina’s World. As she did in Orphan Train, Christina Baker Kline interweaves fact and fiction in a powerful novel that illuminates a little-known part of America’s history. Bringing into focus the flesh-and-blood woman behind the portrait, Kline vividly imagines the life of a woman with a complicated relationship to her family and her past, and a special bond with one of our greatest modern artists. Christina Baker Kline has written six other novels–Orphan Train, Orphan Train Girl, The Way Life Should Be, Sweet Water, Bird in Hand, and Desire Lines–and written or edited five works of nonfiction. Orphan Train spent more than two years on the New York Times bestseller list, including five weeks at # 1, and was published in 40 countries.
