I love book field trips, and this was a good week for them.

On Tuesday, my son Greg, my friend Beverley and I all went on a tour of Grand Central Terminal to celebrate the launch of THE MASTERPIECE by Fiona Davis. In THE DOLLHOUSE, THE ADDRESS and now THE MASTERPIECE, Fiona has written strong works of historical fiction, always set in an iconic New York City location and against two time periods. She links her protagonists together, giving readers a rich reading experience that immerses them in the history of the property. THE MASTERPIECE is set at Grand Central Terminal, which was the reason for our trip there. The tour was led by Amy Hausmann, Senior Curator and Deputy Director of Collections & Exhibitions at the New York Transit Museum, with Fiona sharing locations where scenes from her book took place.
