This was the concluding discussion for the ASF Book Club reading of Portrait of a Thief. ASF members have been engaged since the first session in May 2023.

At the final book club, we discussed:

  • Earlier predictions and compared them to what the characters (did or didn’t) accomplish by the end
  • Our excitement for the Netflix adaptation! We’re curious to see the cast and how they come together on screen
  • Enthusiasm for talking with Grace Li herself at the upcoming ASF author event


  • Debuting the ASF Book Club Zoom backgrounds!
  • Thinking about how to address issues of museums displaying stolen art (ideas like art reparations, returning art to places of origin)
  • Laughing together about whether or not we would do an art heist!
