Read “de Kooning” with us this summer

The Pulitzer Prize winning biography of abstract expressionist painter Willem de Kooning has been sitting on my shelf far too long. I need some accountability so I’m forming a Twitter book club. Here’s what I know so far.


The @abstanfield Twitter book club reading of de Kooning: An American Master begins Monday, June 8.

We’ll use this hashtag in our postings so we can find each others' comments on Twitter: #dekooning

This 600+ page book is a tome and has some dense reading. If we did 100 pages a week, it would take 6 weeks. But let’s start with that and see how it goes.

Grab a copy of the book from your library or favorite independent bookstore and join us! If you want to commit, please leave a comment along with your @Twitter handle.
