Join us here at AMWA for our new bi-monthly book club, Westbound. Every other month, AMWA staff will choose a book that focuses on themes from art history, Indigenous perspectives, and Western frontier history. Both fiction and non-fiction titles will be featured. Westbound will meet on the 2nd Tuesday, every other month, to discuss the book in AMWA’s galleries. Pre-registration and tickets are required. Tickets are $5 each. Each meeting is limited to 15 guests.
