Parnassus books is delighted to welcome Carson Morton as he reads from and signs Hunting Mona Lisa.
In the follow-up to his award-winning novel, Stealing Mona Lisa, Carson Morton takes us on a thrilling race through war-torn France as French patriots attempt to keep Leonardo DaVinci’s masterpiece out of the hands of the rapacious Nazis. In the opening days of World War II, 15-year-old Delphine Fournier is abandoned by her museum curator father when he spirits the Mona Lisa out of Paris ahead of the advancing German army. Four years later, news of her father’s arrest for murder in a village in the South of France forces 19-year-old Delphine to escape occupied Paris in an attempt to save him and to keep the world’s greatest painting out of the clutches of a cunning Nazi agent.
Carson Morton is a published and produced playwright and has worked at Fox Children's Network as a creative consultant. He currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
