August Book Club @MFA

Book Club Logo

Keep St. Pete Lit Book Club has a home at the Museum of Fine Arts in downtown St. Petersburg! Joining forces with the MFA, our book club connects the visual arts with the literary arts. Each month’s featured book ties in with a work in the museum’s collection or a special exhibition.

ALL are welcome to these exciting, engaging and slightly different takes on the usual book club discussions.

Free with museum admission ($5 after 5pm on Thursdays and free all year round for Museum Members). Email keepstpetelit@gmail.com for more information, or feel free to read the book and just come along!

This month: August’s book of the month is Orlando by Virginia Woolf. From the MFA website: “Orlando begins the novel as an Elizabethan era nobleman and awakes three centuries later as a modern woman in the 1920s. As you follow the journey of this fanciful character, compare works in the collection with the descriptions of society and gender roles in the novel.”
