STAMFORD, Conn. – Authors and art collectors Dave Williams and Reba White Williams will discuss their books "Small Victories: One Couple’s Surprising Adventures Building an Unrivaled Collection of American Prints" and "Fatal Impressions" at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Ernest A. DiMattia Jr. Building of The Ferguson Library in Stamford.
"Small Victories" is a memoir by Dave Williams that recounts the Williamses’ four decades of collecting the most comprehensive and adventurous treasury of American prints ever assembled by private collectors. The book is an illustrated journey through American prints, illuminated by the victories, defeats and discoveries of two collectors.
Recognized as experts in the fine art prints, the couple personally selected 6,000 prints that cover both familiar and totally unknown ground. After circulating 17 exhibitions from their collection to more than 100 museums worldwide, in 2008 they donated most of their collection (about 5,000 prints) to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
Reba White Williams will discuss "Fatal Impressions," the second book in the Coleman and Dinah Greene Mystery series.
She continues the adventures of the charming "Sex-and-the-City"-like heroines in the behind-the-scenes art and corporate worlds of New York City.
The next book in the series, "Bloody Royal Prints," will be published in July.
Refreshments will be served at the event.
The Ernest A. DiMattia Building of The Ferguson Library is at the corner of Bedford and Broad streets. For more information, call 203-351-8275.
