Our first book tour and discussion at the Minneapolis Institute of Art was a big success. Please join us for another great read and related art tour. 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 four young people on a road trip across 1950s America, was named Amazon’s Best Book of 2021.
Because attendance is limited to 14 people, we originally accepted reservations only from dues-paying members of HumanistsMN. But now all are invited. We have six spots left!
Attendees must reserve their place 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.)
If you reserved on the earlier Meetup notice for dues-paying members, no need to do so again.
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
This event is sponsored by HumanistsMN. If you are not yet a member, please consider joining to help us cover our costs and build the humanist movement. Not ready to join? Donations are gratefully accepted! Join or donate at our website.
“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“
