Our first book tour and discussion at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts was a big success. Please join us for another great read, and related art tour, just for HumanistsMN. We’ll have a seasoned tour guide from Mia show us various works of art related to the novel “The Lincoln Highway” by Amor Towles.
The bestselling novel by the author of “A Gentleman in Moscow,” which follows three 18-year-olds and an 8-year-old on a road trip across 1950s America, was named Amazon’s Best Book of 2021.
Because attendance is limited to 14 people, we are accepting reservations only from dues-paying members of HumanistsMN. Attendees must reserve their spot by Sept. 1 by paying a nonrefundable $10 fee to HumanistsMN. This will cover the costs of conducting a private tour (a new policy on Mia’s part). You will be directed to PayPal once you RSVP. (Note: Meetup is experiencing some technical problems with event fees. If you RSVP and pay, but are not listed as “Going,” let us know in the comments and we will manually add you to the list.)
We will meet in the lobby (across from the bookstore) at 12:45 p.m.
The tour runs from 1 – 2 p.m. and we’ll gather as a group afterwards from 2 – 3 p.m. to discuss “The Lincoln Highway.”
Here are some reading group guides for your review before we get together. We’ll keep it very informal, but please do plan to share your thoughts and other questions as well. The Lincoln Highway: Questions For Consideration – Amor Towles
Not a dues-paying HumanistsMN member?
If we do not reach the capacity of 14 members by Sept. 1, we will open up this event to nonmembers. Please indicate in the comments if you would like to be notified if that occurs. We will also send out a second Meetup announcement inviting nonmembers to join us.

“The funny thing about a picture, thought Woolly, the funny thing about a picture is that while it knows everything that’s happened up until the moment it’s been taken, it knows absotively nothing about what will happen next. And yet, once the picture has been framed and hung on a wall, what you see when you look at it closely are all the things that were about to happen. All the un-things. The things that were unanticipated. And unintended. And unreversible.”
― Amor Towles, “The Lincoln Highway“
