Book Club: The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
Join Keep St. Pete Lit, a local organization that supports the literary community, for a book club connecting the visual and literary arts. Each month’s featured book will relate to the MFA’s collection or special exhibitions. The group meets in the Bayview Room and discusses the book of the month. The Pulitzer Prize-winning The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz draws us closer to the themes in Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art. Díaz teaches writing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and is a past recipient of the MacArthur “Genius Grant.”
Free with Museum admission, which is only $5 after 5 pm on Thursdays.
