August 8th: Treasure Palaces: Great Writers Visit Great Museums
In this exuberant celebration of the world’s museums, great and small, revered writers like Ann Patchett, Julian Barnes, Ali Smith, and more tell us about their favorite museums, including the Lower East Side Tenement Museum in New York, the Musée Rodin in Paris, and the Prado in Madrid. These essays, brought to life by each author’s unique perspective and deft insight, reveal the special hold that some museums have over us all.
