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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or feel free to read the book and just come along!
There will be no Book Club in April as we celebrate the SunLit Festival instead.

This month: Dorothy Height marched at civil rights rallies, sat through tense White House meetings, and witnessed every major victory in the struggle for racial equality. Yet as the sole woman among powerful, charismatic men, someone whose personal ambition was secondary to her passion for her cause, she has received little mainstream recognition–until now. In her memoir, Open Wide the Freedom Gates, Dr. Height, now ninety-one, reflects on a life of service and leadership.
