Girl With a Pearl Earring

This is an archived discussion summary:

We had a great turnout last week! Some of us had read Girl With a Pearl Earring, by Tracy Chevalier this most recent 2 months and some had read it in the more distant past, but everyone had enjoyed reading it! There wasn't any discussion about not liking it. The discussion centered around some of the history and some of the reasons why we thought people in the book did things, eg, why did Vermeer give Giert the earrings? We had several books of photos of Vermeer's work going around the circle. It's fun when a book opens up new avenues of interest! We're now planning a trip to the Rijksmuseum...someday maybe!
