Zoom meeting

Our spring reading series about travel continues! Join Nancy Green and Maryterese Pasquale-Bowen once again to imagine far-off places through art.

Orhan Pamuk’s Istanbul: Memories and the City is a loving paean to the city he has lived in his entire life, a reflection on art, families, and fate. It is also a self-portrait, refracted by memory and melancholy–or hüzün–that all İstanbullus share: the sadness that comes of living amid the ruins of a lost empire. Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white images, we come to share Pamuk’s nostalgia for the city of his birth.
