May 15, 12:00 PM–1:00 PM
Ticket Price: FREE
Bexar county residents receive free admission to the museum from 10a.m. to Noon. During this time, we will have a self-guided banned book themed tour available.
From Noon to 1:00PM bring a blanket, your favorite book, and spread out on the museum’s west courtyard for SAMA’s first silent book club. Often with traditional book clubs there is a rush to finish the assigned book, along with the added pressure to have something witty to say during the discussion. Introducing the silent book club, where book lovers meet at a certain time and place, read silently while enjoying the community and atmosphere of other readers.
Those that participate in this program can enter to win a curated banned book basket donated by Nowhere Bookshop.
Banned Book basket contains the following:
Maus 1, Anti-Racist Baby, Bluest Eye, Gender Queer, The Hate U Give, All Boys Aren't Blue, Nowhere Books Store Pin, Nowhere Books Stickers, and SAMA Tote Bag. Over a $125 value.
