Winter Morning Reading Group: Blue Arabesque: A Search for the Sublime

Reading Group Facilitator: Nina Simonowicz

Blue Arabesque: A Search for the Sublime by Patricia Hampl is a watercolor of writing; musing on observation, art, and leisure in the creative life. As creators, we all must show up and engage in our practice, be inspired, and be open to, and able to give, constructive criticism. Let’s read this novel and discuss incentives to show up, sources of inspiration, and the role of critique in our work.

View supply list here.

Participants will purchase or check out the book, meet on the first date to get to know one another and discuss an overview of their book. They will spend the month reading, and return on February 21 for a final discussion.

There is a suggested event donation of $10. Participants are asked to give based on their means and can add on a donation of a self-designated amount upon check out.

This event will remain open until February 4, 2019. Please register before this date.
