If you like the idea of a book club, but are worried about the time commitment, this group is for you.  We’ll meet every couple of months and discuss short stories that have a connection to our exhibits and collections.

For our April meeting, we’ll read and discuss F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1920 classic “Bernice Bobs Her Hair.”  In this story about a young woman wrestling with the problems of popularity, Fitzgerald was examining the burgeoning youth culture that would turn the decade that followed into the “Roaring ’20s.”
