Art AfterWords: A Book Discussion

May 11 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

The National Portrait Gallery and the DC Public Library would like to invite you to a virtual conversation about power, gender and collective memory. Join us as we analyze portraits from the exhibition “Every Eye Is Upon Me: First Ladies of the United States” and discuss the related book “Rodham” by Curtis Sittenfeld. Participants are encouraged to visit the exhibition before the event. DCPL cardholders can access “Rodham” here.
