Invitation: Three Lives - Gertrude Stein

From: Elena
Sent on: Monday, July 23, 2018 11:16 PM

Hello, Readers!

Please join us for the next book selection: Three Lives by Gertrude Stein.

In addition to her writing, Gertrude Stein is well known for her art patronage and friendships with a number of post-impressionist artists, many of whose works have informed her literary style.

In this collection of three short stories, published in 1909 and considered more accessible than some of her later, more experimental works, Stein tells the stories of three working-class women in a fictional town of Bridgepoint. The three stories are influenced by the artwork of Cézanne, Matisse, and Picasso.

Our discussion will aim to include some exploration of how visual and literary arts can be interconnected - hope to see many of you there!

 

When:

Sunday, August 12, 2018

5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

 

Where:

Café La Bohème (next to 24th St. BART)

[masked]th Street, San Francisco

 

Gertrude Stein, as a college student at Radcliffe and a medical student at Johns Hopkins Medical School, was a privileged woman, but she was surrounded by women who were trapped by poverty, class, and race into lives that offered little choice. Her portraits of Anna and Lena are examples of realistic depictions of immigrant women who had no occupational choice but to become domestic workers. This collection of documents from the history of women's suffrage, medical history, modernist art, and literature enables readers to see how radical Stein's subject was.
