Online via Zoom

We are pleased to announce our latest installment of CAG Reads, a book club where artists invite us to read alongside them. Each month an artist proposes a text for our collective reading pleasure, culminating in a virtual hangout where the artist leads a wide-ranging discussion grounded in their chosen reading material. 

This month, CAG Reads will be hosted by Elisa Ferrari. Elisa has chosen “Pinky Agarwalia: Biography of a Child Saint in Ten Parts” (2020) by Bhanu Kapil, and excerpts from Jackie Wang’s the sunflower cast a spell to save us from the void (2021) and Erin Moure’s Sitting Shiva on Minto Avenue, By Toots (2017). 

Getting the texts

“Pinky Agarwalia: Biography of a Child Saint in Ten Parts” can be read in full here. PDF scans of selections from the sunflower cast a spell to save us from the void and Sitting Shiva on Minto Avenue, By Toots can be accessed here and here.
