Wood County District Public Library and the Toledo Museum of Art invite you to "experience books
from a new perspective" through a new book discussion series, Pen to Palette @ WCDPL. The series
pairs a traditional book discussion with a tour of TMA especially designed to engage readers with
samples of art and cultural objects relevant to the books being read.
The series starts with a "Madness and Mayhem" tour of TMA this Friday. This tour complements
the recent Community Reads of the works of Edgar Allan Poe. Free round-trip transportation to the museum
will leave from WCDPL at 6:15 p.m. The tour begins at 7 p.m.
In addition to the October tour, two more Pen to Palette events are planned for the fall. A discussion of
"Loving Frank" by Nancy Horan at WCDPL is set for Nov. 9 at 7 p.m., and will be followed by an
"Art, Architecture and Behind the Scenes" tour of TMA on Nov. 13 at 7 p.m. The availability of
free round trip transportation to the museum will be provided for this program is to be announced later.
The final fall Pen to Palette pairing will be a book discussion of "The Glassblower of Murano"
by Marina Fiorato on Dec. 7 at 7p.m. at WCDPL, followed by a special tour of the TMA Glass Pavilion on
Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. Transportation to the museum for this event is on your own.
To assist TMA in preparing for the museum tours, registration is required for these free programs. For
