Event: "Master Thieves" Author Stephen Kurkjian at the Massachusetts Historical Society July 6

Readers of the blog will recall our view of Master Thieves: the Boston Gangesters Who Pulled off the World's Greatest Art Heist by Stephen Kurkjian.  Kurkjian's book is the definitive work on the 1990 robbery of several masterpieces from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, and explores--and dispels--numerous aspects of the infamous case. 

Kurkjian is speaking about the topic at the Massachusetts Historical Society on July 6, 2017.  The event is free and open to the public but registration is required.  For anyone with an interest in this story, I highly recommend attending (I will be there).  With recent developments like the revelation that evidence has gone missing on which DNA testing was to be run, there is no shortage of current relevance.
