Virginia MOCA Read(s) Books

MAR 25 & APR 22
Thursdays, 6:30PM

FREE on Zoom, registration required


Join Virginia MOCA Executive Director, Gary Ryan, and Kristin Hildum, Founder of Read Books, for a discussion of The Dirty Life by author Kristin Kimball. We will explore the themes of local food, sustainable farming and the heart and soul of these movements while connecting the book to works of art featured in the current Virginia MOCA exhibitions.

The book club is a two-part event, kicking off with a virtual tour of our current exhibitions and an introduction to book. Following the virtual tour, participants will receive weekly emails with discussion topics and artwork connections. The culminating gathering will be a virtual group discussion of the book.

Please consider supporting our partner and small local business, Read Books:

Book scholarships are available through Virginia MOCA. Contact for assistance.
