Community Programs

This program is free for and open to the public. Reservations are required and are for the entirety of the October to May program. 

The Museum's virtual book club meets via ZOOM on the third Thursday of the month beginning in October 2021 and running through May 2022. A Museum docent and staff member will participate to facilitate discussion, to allow for a flow of ideas, provide connections to the collections and history of Cape Ann, and to suggest talking points if needed. The meeting dates and the book selection for each date appear below. 2021–2022 CAM Book Club selections were chosen for their subject matter, scholarship and/or insight into the history of Cape Ann.

To register or for questions please contact Amanda Pollock at (978)283-0455 (ex. 110) or email amandapollock@capeannmuseum.org
