In honor of their new exhibit Henry James and American Painting, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum hosts a Third Thursday, cosponsored by the Boston Literary District, all about World Play. We invite you to interact with local artists and writers through literary games, artistic exploration, and poetic activities, using Henry James’s writing as a jumping off point. This lively, social evening features music, creative collaborators, a cash bar, playful gallery activities, and hands-on art making. Don’t forget to try the signature cocktail inspired by Henry James: The Turn of the Screwdriver.
Tickets are required and include Museum admission. Adults $15, seniors $12, students $5, free for members and children 17 and under.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
