Between the Lines

A Book Club by the Penn Museum

The Penn Museum invites you to unlock the human experience through literature by reading “between the lines.” Join us for our twist on the classic book club, featuring carefully curated books with cultural connections, moderated by Museum curators and special guests.

Between the Lines Book Club

Between the Lines participants will meet three times per book through interactive video conferencing. Readers are encouraged to continue the conversation and chat beyond these meetings in the private Between the Lines Facebook group. The moderator will share additional connections to the collection, supplemental readings and videos, and guiding questions through the meetings and Facebook group.

$15 Per Book | $10 Member

The Penn Museum is committed to making this group accessible. Limited scholarships, which include a digital copy of the book and waived registration fees, are available.
