A Moveable Feast Book Club

11:45 a.m.–1:00 p.m.

Each session: $40 public; $35 DMA Member/Educator/Student

Join fellow bibliophiles for lunch in the DMA's Cook Boardroom (unless otherwise noted) as you enjoy the opportunity to delve more deeply into a featured book. By reading and sharing insights together before or after hearing the author speak, we hope your experience will be even richer and more meaningful. Please note that these are book discussions, not author events. 11:45 a.m.–1:00 p.m.

"When you sell a man a book you don't sell him just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue—you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humor and ships at sea by night—there’s all heaven and earth in a book."  —Christopher Morley
