This month’s book:

Red Brick, Black Mountain, White Clay: Reflections on Art, Family, and Survival
by Christopher Benfey

Renowned critic Christopher Benfey shares stories — of his mother’s upbringing in rural North Carolina among folk potteries; of his father’s escape from Nazi Europe; of his great aunt and uncle Josef and Anni Albers, famed Bauhaus artists exiled at Black Mountain
College — and in the process unearths an ancestry, and an aesthetic, that is quintessentially American.

Read in conjunction with Josef Albers: Experiments in Color.
