A&H Book Club

April 23, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Cottage at Lake Lily

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

At this meeting, we’ll discuss The Lost Notebook of Édouard Manet: A Novel, by Maureen Gibbon. Set in the richly drawn art world of nineteenth-century Paris, this stunning historical novel imagines Édouard Manet’s last days in an indelible snapshot of genius, illness, and the dying embers of passion. In a sensual portrait of Manet’s last years, illustrated with his own sketches, Maureen Gibbon offers a vibrant testament to the endurance of the artistic spirit.

You can find this title on Amazon (in print, audio and Kindle) as well as many online used bookstores: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0393867153/

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.
