Leah, director of programs and community engagement:
Who’s up for a trip to Milwaukee to meet the ghost of a proto-feminist world traveler who rejects conventional thinking about American identity? Her name is Mrs. M— and she’s haunting the new installation at the Milwaukee Art Museum called “Mrs. M—’s Cabinet.” Love it when museums get extra wacky.
My heart was seriously warmed by this story of a Los Angeles elementary school who started a book club for students’ immigrant moms in order to foster a culture of reading and discussion at home. The club de literatura has read diverse books including Don Quixote, Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs and novels by Julia Alvarez.
Looks like the NYC subway is asking some pretty deep metaphysical questions.
