MFAH ADDS NEW DIMENSION TO BOOK CLUBS

Private Lives of the ImpressionistsLydia Cassatt Reading the Morning paperThe Museum of Fine Arts has launched a new online book club to provide established book clubs with new ways to link literature to art at the museum. Clubs can choose one of the current selections and download a discussion guide for it. They can read the book and use the discussion guide to facilitate their conversation. Then, they can schedule a special guided tour at the museum to look at works of art that connect with their book.

Selections for fall are Lydia Cassatt Reading the Morning Paper, by Harriet Chessman Scott, and The Private Lives of the Impressionists by Sue Roe.

Visit the MFAH book club website to learn more and to sign up for their e-mail newsletter.
