April 6th, Encountering Mary with Judith Dupre

Judith Dupre will be at NYPL on April 6th speaking about her book.

The Virgin Mary—mythic, spiritually compelling, and intellectually fascinating—has captivated people for over two thousand years.  Join New York Times bestselling author Judith Dupré as she looks at the Virgin Mary’s historical life in the Holy Land; her outsized influence on art, culture and history; and her enduring hold on the creative and spiritual imagination. 

With her trademark wit and appreciation for telling details, Ms. Dupré will discuss why Mary continues to matter in a secular age, and what her life tells us about having faith in uncertain times.  This illustrated talk will include images of the Black Madonna of Czestochowa, Our Lady of Guadalupe, and other beloved portraits of Mary, as well as contemporary works of art, movie stills, and news photographs.
