TMC Book Club Reads The Sixteen Pleasures

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

All are welcome. Let us know if you plan to attend: library@textilemuseum.ca.
