Curated returns for its third season! Curated is dedicated to cultivating community and artistic experiences through reading.

 

Every month we will come together to discuss not only a chosen book but also a curated list of artistic experiences that complement the themes of the book. Curated experiences will include local/virtual gallery exhibits, podcasts, touring/digital performances, workshops, recipes, music, and more.

 

Curated meets the last Monday of the month from 5:30pm-7:30pm.  The first meeting will be held on Monday, August 30th. The first book will be announced to members on August 1st. 

 

$50 membership.

5 books.

5 curated evenings.

 

At this time you are invited to participate in Curated in three different ways:

  1. In person— join us on the Flower Hill dining porch to discuss the book and the curated experiences. 

  2. Over zoom— zoom into the meeting from your own home to discuss the book and the curated experiences. 

  3. In your own time — enjoy the Curated book suggestions and experience letters in your own time.
