Join us to discuss our July virtual book club selection, My Name Is Red by Orhan Pamuk. In 16th-century Istanbul, master miniaturist and illuminator of books Enishte Effendi is commissioned to illustrate a book celebrating the sultan. Soon he lies dead at the bottom of a well, and how he got there is the crux of this novel. A number of narrators give testimony to what they know about the circumstances surrounding the murder. Book club will begin with a showcase of illuminated books from the Rare Book Collections, followed by a discussion of the novel.
