Libros Schmibros Book Club
Libros Schmibros is back at the Hammer with a monthly book club led by co-directors David Kipen and Colleen Jaurretche. Convenings will focus on books related to the museum’s exhibitions and programs.
A new book is selected for discussion each month. All Libros Schmibros Book Club selections are available for purchase in the Hammer Store.
THIS MONTH’S BOOK
The Pat Hobby Stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald, selected as a prelude to the June 2 opening of Made in L.A. 2012, the Hammer’s Los Angeles biennial. The stories focus on a hapless screenwriter who just can’t catch a break and probably doesn’t deserve one. Fitzgerald wrote these stories on the side to pay his bills while working on the L.A. novel he’d never finish, The Last Tycoon.
ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE.
Parking is available under the museum for $3 after 6:00pm.
The Hammer Museum’s Public Engagement program seeks to create a new kind of interactive museum: an artist-driven visitor engagement program that encourages contact among visitors, artists, and Museum staff, and activates spaces in imaginative ways.
The Hammer Museum’s Public Engagement program is supported through a major grant from The James Irvine Foundation.
Libros Schmibros is a project of the Pasadena Artist Council’s EMERGE fiscal sponsorship program.
