On Tuesday, April 10, at 1:30pm the Pen and Paintbrush Book Club will meet at the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts next door to the Barbara Bush Library to discuss two unusual books of local photographs:
One is Houston Deco, by Jim Parsons & David Bush, which includes more than 100 color photographs showcasing the fine detailing on Houston's surviving Art Deco and Art Moderne structures. Author Jim Parsons will be present to talk about this book.
The second is Houston Then & Now, by William Dylan Powell, with black and white images from the Bayou City’s adventurous past alongside striking contemporary photography of its impressive present.
The themes in these books complement the current landscape exhibits at the Pearl Fincher Museum. To learn more about them, go to http://www.pearlmfa.org/ The Museum's Education Director Rosemary Hickman will provide a tour at the museum to highlight issues raised in the discussion.
