Please note: this month’s book club will take place at the Battery Park Book Exchange (located on the corner of Battery Park and O’Henry Avenue in downtown Asheville). The discussion bound group will meet, as usual, at 3pm. Please bring your copy of the book.

Join our monthly book discussion where we read and discuss books that relate to artwork in our galleries. Moderated by a member of the Museum’s staff or a volunteer, we exchange ideas and learn about books, art and each other. On September 10th the featured book will be The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, the classic novel written in 1890 that explores the question: would you sell your soul to the devil in order to remain forever young? Bring your copy of the book. Each book is available for purchase through the Museum Shop. Suggestions for future books are welcome.

Read in conjunction with the current exhibition Legacy: The Emily Fisher Landau Collection.
