Book + Art: A Mash-Up for Art & Book Lovers
Book + Art is a series that connects the public with reading and visual arts. For December the featured pairing is “The House of Broken Angels,” by Luis Alberto Urrea and The Body Says I Am a Fiesta: The Figure in Latin American Art. In this bestselling epic saga, Luis Alberto Urrea tells the story of the De La Cruzes, a family on the Mexican-American border celebrating two of their most beloved relatives during a joyous and bittersweet weekend. The book discussion is paired with a tour of the Norton Museum’s special exhibition of Latin American art. Attendees may visit their local library branch to check out a copy of the book.
