Event description
The Nichols House Museum and Gibson House Museum co-host this book club inspired by the literary salons hosted in the houses’ parlors.

About this event

December meeting: North and South (1854) by Elizabeth Gaskell. Explore 19th century social class inequities through Margaret Hale, a young woman who is uprooted to an industrial town and develops a relationship with a mill owner.

The Gibson House Museum and the Nichols House Museum present the 2021-22 season of Read the Room, our book club inspired by the literary salons of the 19th century.

We welcome our familiar friends and those new to the museums alike to join us for group discussion about the Victorian world and its connections to the contemporary moment. Each month’s book selection will reflect some aspect of the museums. Participants will be provided with a list of discussion questions the week prior to the event, and each event will highlight particular objects or spaces at the host museum that connect to the book. Some programs will take place on site; others will happen virtually, so that we can welcome everyone to an experience that feels comfortable for them.

Space is limited, and advanced registration is required. Registration is free for Nichols House Museum and Gibson House Museum members. For non-members, registration is $12 per meeting or $45 for the entire season.

We’re thrilled to offer a very special joint membership in conjunction with the book club: join both museums for $60 (a savings of $35) and receive free access to the book club as well as member benefits at both museums! Register and sign up for membership here or through this event.
