Book + Art

Read the featured book in advance, then join a lively book discussion and talk on the related artwork via Zoom. This program is a partnership with the Palm Beach County Library System.

Book: In “Ordinary Girls: A Memoir,” Jaquira Diaz writes fiercely and eloquently of her challenging girlhood and triumphant coming of age.

Reserve a copy of the book at www.pbclibrary.org.

Art: Following the book discussion, talk about a related work of art in the Norton Museum of Art’s collection, When I am not here/Estoy alla (1996) by Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons.

Cuban-born artist María Magdalena Campos-Pons’ artistic practice includes photography, painting, performance, video, and mixed media installations. Investigating autobiographical issues of history, race, memory, and gender, her work explores how these complex themes inform identity.
