Join us to read Wendy Lesser’s You Say to Brick: The Life of Louis Kahn (2017) with Off the Shelf: The Wharton Esherick Museum Book Club. Off the Shelf is an Esherick-like twist on the classic book club, and provides the opportunity for bookworms, Esherick fans, and local-community members alike to explore Wharton Esherick’s legacy through the artist’s own richly stocked bookshelves as well as recently published books that illuminate Esherick’s artistic network and enduring legacy.

Each meeting takes place in Esherick’s 1956 Workshop and features a look into WEM’s special collections and archives to explore materials related to the month’s book. Discussions will be moderated by friend of the museum, WEM board member,  and Director of West Chester University Special Collections, Ron McColl and will feature occasional guest specialists. Meetings will be held the second Wednesday evening of every month beginning in April, 2024.  For each meeting we will gather in the 1956 Workshop to discuss a select text and enjoy light fare, refreshments, and community!
