REMINGTON BOOK CLUB
Second Tuesday of the month, noon, in person and via Zoom

Remington's creative output was not limited to paintings, drawings, and sculptures; he wrote works of fiction and nonfiction as well, ranging from articles for the magazines of his day to full-length novels. This book club is an opportunity to explore the work of Remington the writer. We'll begin with his three novels before considering other stories, as decided by book club members. You can plan to participate in the entire series, or individual sessions.

Note: Readers should expect to encounter and discuss Remington's complicated, and sometimes disturbing, views of race and ethnicity.
