Have you ever stood before an Edward Hopper painting and wondered about the story it tells? Join us as we imagine the untold stories within various paintings. Each week we will read short stories based on Edward Hopper paintings, each story written by authors as diverse as Jeffrey Deaver, Michael Connelly, Joyce Carol Oates, and Stephen King. Volunteer participants will lead each discussion on the qualities of the literature and creative art. Supplemental materials will be provided, including helpful checklists about reading short stories and art appreciation. There will be an optional trip to the Art Institute of Chicago to view Hopper’s best-known work, “Nighthawks,” and lunch together at a local restaurant. The book we will read and discuss is In Sunlight or In Shadow, Stories Inspired by The Paintings of Edward Hopper (Pegasus Books Ltd. 2016).
