Strathmore’s art-themed book club explores your favorite artists, turning the pages of both popular and lesser-known novels. Join fellow readers and art enthusiasts once a month to discuss forgotten painters, origins of colors, and miraculous recoveries of masterpieces. Each meeting provides an examination of the factual background along with the fiction.

Book club meetings are currently online. RSVP to receive the Zoom link before the meeting. Registration closes at 10am on meeting days. A Zoom link will be emailed to participants 30 minutes prior to the event. If you do not receive the Zoom link, please check your spam folder or email us at streaming(at)
