Join fellow book lovers for a virtual Art of Reading Book Club featuring Just Kids by Pattie Smith. The terrifically evocative and splendidly titled memoir by Smith details her close relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe and is a testament to devotees of downtown Manhattan’s last momentous period of 20th-century artistic ferment. It is also her portrait of two young artists’ ascent, a prelude to fame. Just Kids begins as a love story and ends as an elegy.
Engage in spirited conversation about the book via Zoom and enjoy a virtual tour of complementary works of art on view at the Museum.
Please reserve your spot by Wednesday, February 9, by clicking on this link. All participants will be sent the Zoom link and instructions via email once you secure your place.
Free for members | $20 for nonmembers
