ART OF READING PUBLIC TOUR: THE INVENTION OF WINGS

Wednesday, May 6, 2-3 p.m.
Mint Museum Randolph
Admission: Free 

Open to fans of Sue Monk Kidd’s The Invention of Wings. This pre-Civil War story presents two extraordinary women: one an urban slave descended from Fon people of western Africa; the other a planter-class Charlestonian who evolves into a Quaker abolitionist and feminist. See selected works of art that help bring to life the historic events and social customs depicted in this work. Children over 12 welcome.
