Talk at the Book Club of California

On Monday, November 19, 2018
Painted Pages
An illustrated talk by Ward Schumaker, artist and book-painter.

Hospitality at 5 PM | Presentation at 6 PM
From designing Snoopy calendars to illustrating Gertrude Stein for The Yolla Bolly Press, the speaker has stumbled from one mistake to another, finally arriving at the production of paintings, sculpture, and one-of-a-kind, hand-painted books. The talk includes the wife of the governor of Nebraska describing the artist’s work as “the dirtiest thing you’ve ever seen;” remembrances of an afternoon spent with M.F.K. Fischer (while illustrating her Two Kitchens in Provence); and the recent accidental sale of his book of Trump quotations (Hate Is What We Need) to Chronicle Books. 

312 Sutter Street
