Beyond the Book
A Book Group Explores Art and Literary Connections
Art meets literature: Eron Grant’s Texas book club participated in The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s MFAH Book Club —- a program linking selected literary titles to works of art, after reading Celeste Ng’s  Little Fires Everywhere . Guided by a museum docent (pictured with club above), the group read passages from the novel and discussed how paintings and other pieces of art reflected the book's themes.

Designed for both established book clubs and readers, the club offers Book Club Tours for three reading selections each year. 
The MFAH Book Club Tour explores the theme of motherhood in Little Fires Everywhere though a discussion of Mary Cassatt's Susan Comforting the Baby. Below, André Derain's The Turning Road
L’Estaque prompts discussion of fire as metaphor in the novel.
