24/8 Book Club

The Art Insitute of Chicago

launches Reading Between the Lions, its first book club, http://www.artic.edu/aic/members_donors/book_club/index.html. For their launch they have made two book selections that honor the concurrent exhibitions featured at the museum. 

The first is The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler in celebration of Edward Hopper.   The second book is a collection of short stories, The Country of the Pointed Firs by Sarah Orne Jewett, in celebration of Winslow Homer as there is a Winslow Homer exhibit currently at the Art Institute so that makes another perfect pick.

If you are in Chicago or coming to Chicago and have an interest at seeing either of these fabulous exhibits do not delay, both will close May 10th, 2008.
