Mounts Botanical Garden Book Discussion Series

FEATURED BOOK: Frida: A Biography of Frida Kahlo by Hayden Herrera

Free Admission

Clayton Hutcheson Conference Room
Chris Jankow, Community Engagement Coordinator

Hailed by readers and critics across the country, this engrossing biography of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo reveals a woman of extreme magnetism and originality, an artist whose sensual vibrancy came straight from her own experiences: her childhood near Mexico City during the Mexican Revolution; a devastating accident at age eighteen that left her crippled and unable to bear children; her tempestuous marriage to muralist Diego Rivera and intermittent love affairs with men as diverse as Isamu Noguchi and Leon Trotsky; her association with the Communist Party; her absorption in Mexican folklore and culture; and her dramatic love of spectacle.

Here is the tumultuous life of an extraordinary twentieth-century woman — with illustrations as rich and haunting as her legend.
