This is a book group that reads selected books together and makes art inspired by those books. This group meets during the Newport Art Museums' monthly event, Art After Dark. It meets in the studio gallery of the museum for one hour. During these meetings, the group discusses the book that had been read for the meeting, in addition to sharing out the art pieces that members had created inspired by the book. During these meetings, the group also picks out the book that they will be reading for the next month through a poll between three books chosen by the moderator. The primary audience for this book group is high school and college aged students. For those that wouldn't be able to make it to an in person meeting, there is also an option to participate remotely through the groups Goodreads page,https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/808643-book-groupies.
