Look. Read. Talk.


Maintaining our focus on reading, conversation, and community partnerships, while also
connecting to
the artworks on view at the Tarble, we introduce Look. Read. Talk. 

On the third Wednesday of each month, join a discussion about reading selections that relate to the exhibitions on view. You are encouraged to check out or purchase books from Booth Library, Bob’s Bookstore, Charleston Carnegie Public Library, and Mattoon Public Library to read and reflect before coming together to ask questions, share thoughts, and discuss ideas. TheTarble will provide a limited number of books on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please contact tarbleprograms@eiu.edu to reserve a copy.
