NOMA Book Club Discussion Program
Tue, September 29th 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 email@example.com for information about joining the NOMA Book Club.
The Forgotten Room by Karen White, Beatriz Williams, and Lauren Willig
Berkley, 2016, ISBN: 0451474635
When critically wounded Captain Cooper Ravenel is brought to a private hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in 1945, young Dr. Kate Schuyler is drawn into a complex mystery that connects three generations of women in her family to a single extraordinary room in a Gilded Age mansion. The portrait miniature belonging to Captain Ravenel depicts a young woman who looks remarkably like Kate. This collaborative novel presents stories from three generations written by three authors.
