In January, members of the Textile Museum of Canada’s Book Club discussed the history of Turkey and its customs, collectors and collecting, museums, love, obsession and many other layers of the featured book The Museum of Innocence, by Turkish author Orhan Pamuk. The New York Times magazine recently published an interesting article about Pamuk’s Museum of Innocence project.
The Book Club will discuss The Sixteen Pleasures by Robert Hellenga, at its next meeting, Thursday, March 24, at 5:30 pm on the Mezzanine.
Other books being considered by the Club: A Perfect Red by Amy Butler Greenfield Japan, In Our Day by Bayard Taylor (originally published in 1872, republished in 2009) The Lady and the Unicorn by Tracy Chevalier What’s Bred in the Bone by Robertson Davies Fauna by Alissa York The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
