Get your discussion group, book club, or group of friends together for this. MFAH has a docent-led tour and discussion on a selected book which means that a docent will take your group around the museum to look at art that complements the book, and they will engage the group in a discussion to deepen the understanding of both book and art.
Houston Great Books schedules at least two of these events for individuals. Email Louis for more information.
