CAM Virtual Book Club

October 21 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free for CAM Members
The Cape Ann Museum is hosting a virtual book club.

Beginning in October 2020 and running through May 2021. A Museum docent and staff member will participate to facilitate discussion, to allow for a flow of ideas, provide connections to the collections and history of Cape Ann, and to suggest talking points if needed. The meeting dates and the book selection for each date appear below. 2020–2021 CAM Book Club selections were chosen for their subject matter, scholarship and/or insight into the history of Cape Ann. All CAM members are encouraged to read along and keep an eye out for related programming and exhibits this year.

Space is limited; reservations are required and are for the entirety of the October to May program. The group meets on the third Thursday of each month as noted below from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Free for CAM members
