Book Club Discussion of The Revisionist
by Miranda Mellis

In conjunction with Megan Vossler's exhibition, Sound Signals, Franklin Art Works and Rain Taxi Review of Books are pleased to present a book club discussion of Miranda Mellis' acclaimed novella, The Revisionist.  The Revisionist describes a character who conducts covert surveillance over an anonymous city whose inhabitants are subject to uncanny transformations as a result of catastrophic weather, political corruption, and environmental degradation.  
Presenting superb visual resonance to Mellis' tale, Megan Vossler's current series of large-scale drawings presents an epically scaled northern landscape dotted varied figures reassessing their positions within an environment that has been indelibly changed through an unknown catastrophe. Miranda Mellis will be present to discuss The Revisionist with attendees and Vossler will discuss the impact of the book on the works in the exhibition.  The event will take place in FAW's Main Gallery.

 Please feel free to attend even if you haven't read The Revisionist; Come for wine, cheese, and lively discussion! 

SATURDAY, March 13 @ 6:30pm
