NOMA Book Club Discussion Group

Fri, June 26th at 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Join 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 2020 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 NOMA’s Education Department at 504.658.4128 or education@noma.org for information about joining the NOMA Book Club.

June 2020

An Orchestra of Minorities by Obioma Chigozie
Little, Brown and Company, 2019, ISBN: 0316412392

Set on the outskirts of Umuahia, Nigeria, and narrated by a chi, or guardian spirit, this novel tells the love story of Chinonso, a young poultry farmer, and Ndali, who is from a wealthy family. When Ndali’s family objects to their union, Chinonso sells his possessions to attend a college in Cyprus. Spanning multiple continents, traversing the earth and cosmic spaces, and told by a narrator who has lived for hundreds of years, the novel is a contemporary twist of Homer’s Odyssey. Written in the mythic style of the Igbo literary tradition, Chigozie Obioma weaves a heart-wrenching epic about destiny and determination.
