Art and Fiction Book Club

Three Wednesdays, Aug 17, 24, and 31, 2016, 1:30–2:45

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 August, discover the epic love story of Layla and Majnun and explore the exhibition Art and Stories from Mughal India. The story of Layla and Majnun is one of five epic poems written by the poet Nizami, who transformed a local legend into a classic work of Sufi literature.

Please note
Thursday sessions are canceled due to insufficient enrollment. Thursday enrollees may attend the Wednesday sessions instead or call the ticket office for a refund.
