Milwaukee Art Museum -- Calendar

Book Salon: The Devil Finds Work


Saturday, July 20, 2013, 10:30 AM

Join other book enthusiasts this summer for lively discussions at the Milwaukee Art Museum. This series features books related to the 30 Americans exhibition.

July 20: The Devil Finds Work by James Baldwin 
August 17: Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison

In The Devil Finds Work, James Baldwin challenges the underlying assumptions in such films as In the Heat of the Night, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, and The Exorcist, offering a vision of America’s self-delusions and deceptions. Here are our loves and hates, biases and cruelties, fears and ignorance, reflected by the films that have entertained us and shaped our consciousness. Here, too, is the stunning prose of a writer whose passion never diminished his struggle for equality, justice, and social change. 

RSVP to adults@mam.org or 414-224-3826. Books are available from the Museum Store.
