This is where art and literature meet! 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. That 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. The museum chooses four books a year, and each book is offered for four months.
