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.
January 14: Rebecca Solnit’s A Field Guide to Getting Lost will offer an introduction to this gifted writer, who will engage in a discussion with artist Carrie Schneider at 3 p.m. Sunday, January 17, at the MFA. That is also the final day of the exhibition Carrie Schneider: Reading Women.
February 11: J. Ryan Stradal’s Kitchens of the Great Midwest is an ideal choice to complement the images of food in our collection and the publication of Food + Art, The Stuart Society’s cookbook.
March 10: The portraits in Contemplating Character will inspire you to meet the quirky and influential people in Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs.
