Sheboygan author Lisa Vihos will read from her novel The Lone Snake: The Story of Sofonisba Anguissola, answer questions and sign books April 1, 1-2 pm, at Yardstick Books, 317 Steele St. in Algoma.
In The Lone Snake, Vihos brings Renaissance artist Sofonisba Anguissola to life as a woman who’s yearning for recognition in a world that’s not ready for her. Readers journey with Anguissola through her early years in Cremona to Rome, where she studies with Michelangelo; to her time at Spanish court; and eventually out to sea, where she meets the love of her life under a starry sky.
Vihos’ poetry has appeared in numerous poetry journals, and she has published four chapbooks. She has two Pushcart Prize nominations and several awards from the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets and the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters.
