Smart Reads

Join in the Smart Museum of Art’s virtual book club, Smart Reads! 

Smart Reads aims to foster care within our community during an unprecedented time of collective social anxiety and separation. Over the next year, we invite you to delve into books surrounding love, art, culture, politics, relationships, and more. Each book selection features a series of small group conversations hosted by Dorian H. Nash, along with guest facilitators. 

FREE. To help build a community of participants, capacity is limited and advanced registration is required. 

Smart Reads is presented by the Smart Museum of Art in collaboration with Seminary Co-op Bookstores.
