P.3Reads | Thursday, December 11

Presented in partnership with the New Orleans Public Library, P.3Reads invites participating artists to share the books that have been important to them–either in their personal lives or their work–and to discuss them monthly in a conversation with members of the New Orleans community.

The origin of this program came about because Artistic Director Franklin Sirmans has been deeply influenced by several books in his selection for Prospect.3, in his  articulation of the concepts for the exhibition.  As a writer and long time critic, literature and art have always gone hand-in-hand for Franklin.

For Franklin, a key novel is The Moviegoer by Walker Percy, which was the subject of the first P.3Readsdiscussion at the Main Library in January, 2014. Other books important to him are Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino, Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, Another Country by James Baldwin, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting by Milan Kundera and Blindness by José Saramago.

Special thanks to Henry Lambert and R. Carey Bond for their generous support of this program, as well as the Joan Mitchell Foundationthe Edward Wisner Donation Fund of the City of New Orleans, the Ruth U. Fertel Foundation and the National Council of Jewish Women/ Greater New Orleans Section.
