Art and Fiction Book Club

Three Wednesdays, April 13–27, 1:30–2:45 p.m. 
Note: The Thursday sessions have been cancelled due to insufficient enrollment.

Meeting quarterly, the Art and Fiction Book Club explores each reading selection through lectures, gallery talks, and a discussion group led by educators, curators, and experts.

In April, travel down the Nile through 19th-century Egypt with Crocodile on the Sandbank, the first mystery in Elizabeth Peters’ Amelia Peabody series. Heiress Amelia Peabody decides to use her newly-inherited riches to travel and heads to Egypt, where she encounters strange circumstances involving an archaeological dig, a very grumpy head archaeologist, and a mysteriously mobile mummy. 

April 13: Introductory lecture on archaeology in Egypt. 
April 20: Tour of Pyramids and Sphinxes with Barbara Tannenbaum, Curator of Photography
April 27: Book discussion with Bethany Corriveau and Stephanie Foster.
