Horse by Geraldine Brooks

Monday May 6, 2024
1 – 2:30 pm

The Heckscher Museum is pleased to offer our Book Club, which meets in-person in the Museum galleries. Join Book Group leader, Jeri Weitman, as she guides participants through a carefully curated selection of fiction and non-fiction books about art that are sure to be enjoyed!

A discarded painting in a junk pile, a skeleton in an attic, and the greatest racehorse in American history create an American epic about race, freedom, horses, and art. Based on the true story of the record-breaking thoroughbred Lexington, Horse is a novel of art and science, love and obsession.

Members: $20, Non-Members: $25
*Please Note: This program will take place in the Small Meeting Room, Cold Spring Harbor Library, 95 Harbor Road, Cold Spring Harbor, NY 11724.
