Page Views book club: 'Revelations'

September 24, 2017
11:00 am
de Young Museum

Join us on Sunday, September 24th for our next Page Views meetup - the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco book club - to discuss 'Homegoing' by Yaa Gyasi. Beginning in Ghana, 'Homegoing' follows the parallel paths of two sisters and their descendants through eight generations: from the Gold Coast to the plantations of Mississippi, from the American Civil War to Jazz Age Harlem, illuminating slavery's troubled legacy both for those who were taken and those who stayed. This title has been selected in conjunction with 'Revelations: Art from the African American South,' which celebrates the debut of a major acquisition of 62 works by contemporary African American artists from the Southern United States. ABOUT PAGE VIEWS: The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco has a book club! Our goal is to deepen engagement with works on view by pairing special exhibitions with a companion text. Together, we'll celebrate art history, literature, and the thrill of lively discussion among friends new and old. ADMISSION: Entry to this event is free. Entry to 'Revelations: Art from the African American South' is included with general admission - we highly recommend visiting the exhibition to enrich your experience! BUY THE BOOK: 'Homegoing' is available to pre-order through our online store. Visit: https://shop.famsf.org/products/homegoing to buy your copy and don't forget that members receive 10% off! FACEBOOK LIVE: Can't join us at the museum? Tune in on Facebook! We'll be live streaming this event and encourage you to share your thoughts and ask questions via social media. HASHTAG: Read along with us and share your favorite parts of the book using the #PageViewsSF hashtag.
