Mowday Speaks on his book “Stealing Wyeth”

May 14, 2021 @ 5:00 PM

Author Bruce E. Mowday will give a presentation on his latest true crime book, Stealing Wyeth, on Friday evening at Radley Run Country Club.

The book details the theft of 15 paintings from the estate of Andrew Wyeth. The almost priceless works of art were buried, stored in junked cars and placed in an attic wall before being recovered.

“Radley Run is the perfect venue for the talk,” Mowday said. “The theft of the paintings took place close to the country club. Seven of the paintings were by Andrew Wyeth and six were by his son Jamie.”

The live presentation, with safety precautions, begins at 5:00 p.m. with a dinner buffet costing $25.00. For reservations, call 610-793-1660. Mowday’s talk begins at 6:00 p.m. Radley Run is located at 1100 Country Club Road, West Chester, PA 19382.

Signed books will be available for purchase. The cost of the book is $25.00.
