HIDDEN TAPESTRY tells the fascinating life story of Flemish American artist Jan Yoors—childhood vagabond, wartime Resistance fighter, and polyamorous New York bohemian. At the peak of his fame in the 1970s, Yoors' photographs and vast tapestries inspired a dedicated following in his adopted Manhattan.
 
At twelve, Jan's life took an extraordinary and unexpected turn when, lured by stories of Gypsies, he wandered off with a group of Roma. Later, as an adult in German-occupied France, Yoors joined the Resistance and persuaded his adoptive Roma family to fight alongside him. Defying repeated arrests and torture by the Gestapo, he worked first as a saboteur and later escorted Allied soldiers trapped behind German lines across the Pyrenees to freedom.
 
After the war, he married childhood friend Annabert van Wettum and embarked on his career as an artist. When a friend of Annabert's, Marianne Citroen, modeled for Yoors, the two began an affair, which led the three to form a polyamorous family that would last for the rest of their lives.  Moving to New York, the trio became part of the bohemian life of Greenwich Village in the 1950s.
 
"In HIDDEN TAPESTRY, Debra Dean dives into the artist's singular backstory and the equally compelling stories of his wives, Annabert van Wettum and Marianne Citroen. This is a well-researched, well-written, and unusual biography…There's a fascinating story here, and Dean tells it well." –Foreword Magazine
 
The Yoors' story is a luminous and inspiring account of resilience, resourcefulness, and love.
Debra Dean will share this extraordinary story and sign copies of HIDDEN TAPESTRY at The BookMark, 220 First Street, Neptune Beach, at 7:00 PM.
