Original post made on Nov 5, 2012

Spend an evening with historian Ross King at Rakestraw Books (550 Hartz Ave.) on Friday, Nov. 9. In his compelling new book, "Leonardo and the Last Supper," King explores how -- amid war and the political and religious turmoil around him, and beset by his own insecurities and frustrations -- Leonardo da Vinci created the masterpiece that would forever define him. King unveils dozens of stories that are embedded in the painting. Make your reservation by calling 837-7337. The event is free and begins at 7 p.m.

Is this a new address for Rakestraws? I went by yesterday and the old bookstore is closed up...I did not see a sign that they had moved. Maybe I just missed it.
