NOMA Book Club Discussion Group
September 14, 2017 at 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Join NOMA staff and fellow book lovers as we read and discuss fiction and nonfiction books related to art, artists, art museums, NOMA’s collections and exhibitions. Our full 2017 schedule and reading list has been announced.
Organized by NOMA’s Felix J. Dreyfous Library, the Book Club is an informal group. You do not have to attend every meeting and we understand if you have to leave a discussion or program early. The book club offers several types of programs: a book discussion group that meets once a month (no reading in December), curatorial programs, field trips, and Meet the Author receptions. Most book club programs start promptly at noon, but please arrive at 11:30 a.m. if you wish to bring a sack lunch or meet beforehand. NOMA will provide water and soft drinks.
RSVP for the meetings you wish to attend so we can prepare the meeting space.
Some of the selections for 2017 will relate to the NOLA4WOMEN project.
NOLA4WOMEN takes action through innovative programs to celebrate women and girls, provides a forum to address the challenges they face and promotes a future where they have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Please contact Sheila A. Cork at 504.658.4117 or firstname.lastname@example.org for information about joining the NOMA Book Club.
September 2017 Selection
Oil and Marble: A Novel of Leonardo and Michelangelo by Stephanie Storey
Arcade Publishing, 2015. ISBN: 978-1628726398
“Tremendously entertaining and ‘unapologetic’ in its artistic license, Oil and Marble will remind an older generation of the pleasures of Irving Stone’s art historical fiction, particularly his chronicle of the Sistine Chapel ceiling commission, The Agony and the Ecstasy. Storey’s affection for the period is clear. Her narrative instincts are strong and her dialogue sharp; throughout, her exposition is adroit and informative.” – New York Times
