A&H Book Club

October 9, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Cottage

Make new friends at the A&H Members-Only Book Club! Join A&H Director of Advancement Jessi VanPelt every other month in our scenic Cottage at Lake Lily to share your opinions on fascinating topics in the realms of art and history. At the end of each meeting, we’ll vote on what book to read together next.

At our second meeting, we’ll discuss Old In Art School: A Memoir of Starting Over by Nell Painter. Following her retirement from Princeton University, celebrated historian Dr. Nell Irvin Painter surprised everyone in her life by returning to school–in her sixties–to earn a BFA and MFA in painting. We’ll dive into questions like: How are women and artists seen and judged by their age, looks, and race?, and more.

We will have a couple copies of this book in our Museum Store, or you can find this title on Amazon, as well as many online used bookstores, and at public libraries. Choose us as your Amazon Smile charity and we’ll receive 0.5% of all your Amazon purchases as a donation.

Book Club meetings are just $5 (which includes snacks and sodas). Space is limited so you must register in advance. If you’re not a current A&H member, you must join or renew before Book Club date. Membership payments cannot be accepted at the event.

If you have any questions or need to verify your membership status, contact Jessi at jvanpelt@artandhistory.org. (Send your recommendations for what book to read next here too!)
