 On this occasion author Dianne Hales, acclaimed writer of best seller “La Bella Lingua”) will launch her new book “Mona Lisa”. All perspective students will receive a free signed copy of “La Bella Lingua”.

In “MONA LISA: A Life Discovered” (Simon & Schuster, 2014, $28.00), the author reveals, through years of dogged research, the facts of Lisa’s life. Dianne Hales’s discovery that Lisa Gherardini “was a real woman who lived in Florence 500 years ago” was the beginning of her decades-long quest to know the details of that life, the events and people who would have an influence on the way she lived, and a period that would give rise to a group of uncommonly creative artists who would become the stuff of legend.


A reception-sponsored by IACE- will follow at 6:30pm.
