Virtual Book Club: 'My Name Is Red'

Wednesday, July 21, 2021 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Join us to discuss our July virtual book club selection, My Name Is Red by Orhan Pamuk.

In 16th-century Istanbul, master miniaturist and illuminator of books Enishte Effendi is commissioned to illustrate a book celebrating the sultan. Soon he lies dead at the bottom of a well, and how he got there is the crux of this novel. A number of narrators give testimony to what they know about the circumstances surrounding the murder. 

Book club will begin with a showcase of illuminated books from the Rare Book Collections, followed by a discussion of the novel.

Free and open to all, pre-registration is required.
