The 32nd National Arts & Crafts Conference at the Omni Grove Park Inn, Asheville, NC February 15 - 17, 2019
"The most important weekend of the year for Arts & Crafts collectors." - The New York Times
The Arts & Crafts Book Club
Arts and Crafts collectors are also Arts and Crafts readers -- which helps explain why we have such a wonderful array of periodicals, quarterlies, newsletters, websites and books to choose from. Some provide us with information on what we collect; others give us a glimpse into what life was like during the Arts & Crafts era.
Each year we solicit suggestions from our attendees, past and future, as to what books they might like to read prior to next February's National Arts & Crafts Conference. We then select two and assign each a time and a place at the National Arts & Crafts Conference for those of you who have read either of the books to meet, discuss your ideas and share your opinions (those we always have plenty of!).
Our moderator for several years has been Pat Bartinique, a professor of English, an Arts & Crafts collector, an author and a thirty-one year attendee at the Grove Park Inn Arts and Crafts Conference. Pat reads each of the suggested works, then narrows the list down for us based on her experience both as a reader and as a teacher.
As always, if you have any suggested titles for the future, don't hesitate to email Bruce at Bruce1915@gmail.com.
