Poster House Book Club: Carter Beats the Devil

June 25, 2020
6:30–7:30pm

Purchase Tickets

This event is ticketed separately from regular museum admission and we recommend you purchase your ticket in advance.

The Poster House Book Club meets a few times an exhibition cycle to discuss vibrant, interesting, and dynamic works of fiction which relate to the posters on view.

In honor of our magical billboard installation, we will be discussing Carter Beats the Devil, a “hypnotizing work of historical fiction that stars 1920s magician Charles the Great, a young master performer whose skill as an illusionist exceeds even that of the great Houdini.”

This meeting of the Poster House Book Club will be moderated by Laurie Gwen Shapiro. She has written articles for publications including The New Yorker, New York Magazine, The Daily Beast, Lapham’s Quarterly, Slate, Aeon, Los Angeles Review of Books, and The Forward. Shapiro is also a documentary filmmaker who won an Independent Spirit Award for directing IFC’s Keep the River On Your Right: A Modern Cannibal Tale and an Emmy nomination for producing HBO’s Finishing Heaven.

Aimed at being an intimate, thoughtful discussion, tickets are limited!

The café will be open.

Member (must show card at door): $12
