Book lovers unite at the Member Book Club—pairing literature with the latest exhibitions! With special guest, Rosario I. Granados, the Blanton’s Marilynn Thoma Associate Curator, Art of the Spanish Americas.

This fall, we’re reading Isabel Allende’s sweeping historical novel Inés of My Soul in connection with the vibrant exhibition Painted Cloth: Fashion and Ritual in Colonial Latin America, on view through January 8, 2023.  A fictionalized account of a real-life figure, Inés of My Soul provides a glimpse into life in the early Spanish Americas and, like the exhibition, offers abundant material for discussion.
