A Moveable Feast Book Club

Join fellow bibliophiles for a buffet lunch from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the DMA’s Founders Room while you enjoy thoughtful dialogue about a featured book at least a week before Arts & Letters Live author events. By reading and sharing insights together before hearing the author speak, your experience will be even richer and more meaningful.

Book Club Moderators:

His current book project is a biography of the legendary Texas cattleman Charles Goodnight.

"When you sell a man a book you don't sell him just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue—you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humor and ships at sea by night—there’s all heaven and earth in a book."—Christopher Morley
