Aug 7 @ 6:00 pm – 6:45 pm

Free Friday Evening Guided Tours

Learn more about The Wolfsonian collection and related art and design themes during a 45-minute, free guided tour of the permanent collection or temporary exhibitions.

Wolfsonian Book Club: A Good Man is Hard to Find by Flannery O’Connor @ The Wolfsonian-FIU
Aug 7 @ 7:00 pm

The Wolfsonian Book Club explores literary works whose subjects are relevant to current exhibitions and collection themes. With A Good Man is Hard to Find (1955), a short story collection, Flannery O’Connor firmly laid claim to her place as one of the most original and provocative writers of her generation. Steeped in a Southern Gothic tradition that would become synonymous with her name, these stories show O’Connor’s unique, grotesque view of life—infused with religious symbolism, haunted by apocalyptic possibility, sustained by the tragic comedy of human behavior, and confronted by the necessity of salvation.

 

Free for members and first-time participants // Join or RSVP by emailing bookclub@thewolf.fiu.edu.
