We’ll be gathering in the QVCC Reading Room to kick off the QC Reads One Book, One Region season with a reception and lecture about Andrew Wyeth. Our speaker will be Jessica Dudek-Viens, an Adjunct Professor of Art History at Quinebaug Valley Community College.

Jessica is an artist and educator who grew up in Northeastern Connecticut and lives in Killingly. She has a background in painting and drawing. Her recent work is predominately in the medium of social practice and community engagement. She invites social engagement with individuals, communities and organizations to create participatory art that can effect positive change in areas of community connection, healing and sustainability. Currently she is the Co-Chair of the Killingly Community Garden, and an MFA candidate at the University of Hartford.

Hardcover copies of the book will be available for purchase at $20 each.
