Art AfterWords: A Book Discussion

About this Event

The National Portrait Gallery and the DC Public Library would like to invite you to a virtual conversation about immigrant families, identity, and storytelling. Join us as we analyze David Levine’s portrait of Pulitzer Prize winner Jhumpa Lahiri from the new exhibit Her Story: A Century of Women Writers, and discuss the related book, Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations by Mira Jacob. Participants are encouraged to explore the virtual exhibition before the event: https://npg.si.edu/exhibition/her-story-century-women-writers.

DCPL Cardholders! You can access “Good Talk” here: https://dclibrary.overdrive.com/media/4317592

The Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants 24- 48 hours in advance of the program. The email will come from Eventbrite. Please only register for yourself. We will only be allowing participants into the meeting if their name (and email address) is on the registration list.

The Portrait Gallery strives to provide programs that are accessible to all visitors. For questions, or to request accommodations such as an ASL interpreter or captioning, please email NPGAccess@si.edu at least one week in advance of the program.
