Too Much Sea for Amateurs-Marooned by Maggie Sasso


Engage with popular literature in a hands-on, imaginative way! Each month the Book to Art Club will discuss a selected book while working on an art project inspired by the story. For the November discussion of Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan, staff from the Milwaukee Public Library will teach a simple art project you can make with common items found at home.

The project will be inspired by the book and by the sculpture created by local artist Maggie Sasso for the 2020 Sculpture Milwaukee exhibition. Registration is recommended to receive an email with early information about the art project and suggested supplies.  Manhattan Beach can be put on hold for pick-up at your nearest branch via CountyCat or on hold via eBook on OverdrivePlease join the meeting from your computer, tablet or smartphone.   You can also dial in using your phone.
