Copies of "What Follows is True: Crescent Hotel" by Sean Fitzgibbon are on sale at the Muscatine Art Center. Hardcovers are available for $40 and hardcovers with a slip cover are $60.

The hand-painted images in the exhibition document the Baker Hospital, a hotel converted into a cancer hospital during the Depression Era. The notorious Muscatine man, Norman Baker, claimed to have the cure for cancer.

Filmmaker Chad Bishop will be on hand to discuss the film, "Norman Baker: The Man in Purple", which will screen at 3:00 p.m. in the Muscatine Art Center Music Room following the book signing.
