A Perfect Red recounts the colorful history of cochineal, a legendary red dye that was once one of the world’s most precious commodities. As you read: Choose a quote from the book that you found interesting and would like to discuss. Is there an event from your experience that illustrates something the author learned or wrote about? Please bring your quote and any images that help illustrate your thoughts to the meeting to augment the conversation.
About: The WGM Community Read is an informal gathering of members who explore writings related to weaving, spinning, dyeing, fiber and history. We meet 3 tmes per year to discuss a chosen book and related themes. Discussions are led by guild librarian Mary Skoy. Members are encouraged to reflect on their own experiences, show related textile samples, and bring their questions. We meet over Zoom and the meeting info is published in The Draft members’ newsletter. All are welcome.
