YAM Notes: January/February 2024

By Gregory A. Weiss

Announcing the publication of two recent books: Steve Timbers has written his second novel. This one, The Degas Trove, has plenty of Yale connections. A wealthy woman contributes three important impressionist works of art to the Yale art gallery only to find that two of them are stolen that same night. Compounding her stress, she also learns that her grandniece, an art history graduate student, has been murdered in the stacks at Sterling Memorial Library. How to solve all of this?

Shel Stromquist is proud to announce the publication of his latest book, Claiming the City: A Global History of Workers’ Fight for Municipal Socialism (Feb., 2023, Verso Press, in London and New York). Shel is a professor emeritus of history at the University of Iowa.

Michael Dalby and Jesse Lovejoy continue to deliver fascinating programs under the ’66 LIVE format. Recent guests include Ishaan Tharoor (Yale ‘06), anchor of the Washington Post’s Today’s WorldView, and Yale Athletic Director. Vicky Chun.
