SECCA Throughlines

SECCA Throughlines is open to the public. The book club reads primarily contemporary fiction and memoir, exploring how such works speak to (or against) our understanding of what it means to be human, how language shapes our reality, and how technology affects our relationships. The club meets regularly at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) in Winston-Salem.

Book club members, make sure to mention your book club when checking out in-store at Bookmarks to save 20% off your book club purchases.
