Café Society Book Group: The Gargoyle Hunters

May 9, 2019 at 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Gargoyle Hunters by John Freeman Gill

Lively discussions on every second Thursday of the month feature books relating to Museum exhibitions, collections or other topical themes. This month’s selection is The Gargoyle Hunters by John Freeman Gill. In 1970s Manhattan, 13-year-old Griffin Watts and his father are on an illicit mission to salvage 19th-century architectural sculptures—gargoyles and sea monsters, goddesses, and kings. As his father sees it, these evocative creatures, crafted by immigrant artisans, are an endangered species in an age of sweeping urban renewal.

Meet in the Museum Café.

Book may be purchased at the Museum Store: $16.95; members $15.25
