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 first meeting we’ll discuss How to Enjoy Art: A Guide for Everyone by Ben Street, a lively guide to rediscovering the pleasures of art. How to Enjoy Art: A Guide for Everyone debunks the pervasive idea that specialist knowledge is required to understand and appreciate art. Using examples from around the world and throughout art history, Ben Street demonstrates a handful of strategies to enhance the experience of viewing art works.

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. 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.
