Join us for the Words & Pictures book club where we will be reading and discussing novels in which visual art and artists are relevant to the narrative. At our August meeting we’ll look at Alicia Foster’s “Warpaint” & art-works from World War II by four women artists: Evelyn Dunbar, Grace Golden, Laura Knight & Isabel Rawsthorne.
