NOMA Book Club Discussion Group
September 14 at 12:00 PM - 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 2018 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.
Please contact Sheila A. Cork at 504.658.4117 or firstname.lastname@example.org for information about joining the NOMA Book Club.
