Go beyond the printed page with LiterArti, our new discussion group for devoted readers and art lovers. Share your thoughts on our selected read (books, short stories, and graphic novels related to art of all styles, types, and periods) at the Happy Dog, then come to the museum and explore real-life art straight out of the story.

Our next book is The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson. In the midst of the vibrant cty of Palmares Tres, June Costa creates art that's sure to make her legendary. But her dreams of fame become something more when she meets Enki, the bold and handsome new Summer King. Although the whole city falls in love with him, June sees more to Enki than amber eyes. She sees a fellow artist.
