Crocker Book Club: “My Name is Red” by Orhan Pamuk

Presented by the Crocker Art Museum

Back Event Aug 24, 2017 @ 6 pm

The Crocker Book Club returns with another book that incorporates art in unique ways. Enjoy a robust discussion of the book led by a Museum educator, followed by a gallery activity.

Grab a drink or snack from the Crocker Cafe by Supper Club, and then join us in the first-floor meeting center for a fun exchange of ideas about the book, art, and life. The breakout novel by Turkish writer Orhan Pamuk, “My Name is Red” centers on miniaturist artists of the Ottoman Empire in 1591 and swirls together murder, intrigue, romance, and philosophical puzzles. Told in a unique style incorporating multiple narrators and points of view, this 1998 novel made Pamuk an international literary star who would go on to win the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2006. Free for members, $10 for nonmembers. Tickets may be purchased at or at the Museum admission desk.
