Each monthly session highlights a selected book and an artwork in the Museum Collection or a special exhibition. Reading the book in advance is recommended. Reserve your copy of the book today at any Palm Beach County Library System location or at www.pbclibrary.org.
Book: Marisol McDonald Doesn’t Match by Monica Brown + special exhibition Art: The Body Says, I Am a Fiesta: The Figure in Latin American Art
Summary: Marisol McDonald has flaming red hair and nut-brown skin. Polka dots and stripes are her favorite combination. She prefers peanut butter and jelly burritos in her lunch box. And don’t even think of asking her to choose one or the other activity at recess—she’ll just be a soccer playing pirate princess, thank you very much. To Marisol McDonald, these seemingly mismatched things make perfect sense together.
