Get lost in a great book, in great company. Lounge on the Museum’s East End, with fellow readers and Milwaukee-based book influencer Cree Myles, with a book from home or the selection available. Hosted in conjunction with the On Site: Derrick Adams: Our Time Together exhibition, this D.E.A.R. experience celebrates Black authors, providing a curated selection of books; the joy and power of fiction; and gatherings, even when intimate and involving a largely solitary activity.

Drop everything—and read.

Free, from East End entrance. Space is limited; registration is recommended. Proof of vaccination is required.


Cree Myles is the inaugural editor and curator of the Penguin Random House initiative All Ways Black. She has collaborated with Center for Fiction, Belletrist, and Out of Print and hosted conversations with writers Ta-Nehisi Coates, Kiese Laymon, and Glory Edim, among others.
