The Blowing Rock Art and History Museum held its first book
club meeting at the end of November.
Thirteen participants read Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing Lincoln,” shared appetizers and had a lively discussion upstairs in the museum’s conference room.
The program, which plans to run from November through April, was created by Virginia Falck, BRAHM’s education programs coordinator, with encouragement from BRAHM members Fredel Reighard and Sabine Miller. The books chosen for the BRAHM book club will generally be focused on art, history and, oftentimes, both.
Due to the hectic holiday season, the club will meet twice in the month of January, once Thursday, Jan. 3, and again on Thursday, Jan. 31, both from 5 to 7 p.m.
The first book in January is “The Forger’s Spell: A True Story of Vermeer Nazis, and the Greatest Art Hoax of the Twentieth Century” by Edward Dolnick.
The book for the Jan. 31 meeting is “The Judgment of Paris: The Revolutionary Decade That Gave the World Impressionism” by Ross King.
Those interested in attending should contact Virginia Falck at (828) 295-9099, ext. 3006, (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by visiting http://www.blowingrockmuseum.org.
