The fact that legendary artist Vincent Van Gogh had a short and troubled life are well known facts, but there are many other aspects surrounding the artist's life that have largely remained unknown.

In her first historical novel, "Leaving Van Gogh A Novel," author Carol Wallace employs rich detail and thorough research to shed light on the life and death of Van Gough.

Wallace will visit the library as part of the Authors on Stage series on Thursday, Dec. 8. The event, co-sponsored by Elm Street Books, will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Adrian Lamb Room.
