May: The Architecturally Macabre Book Club

May: The Architecturally Macabre Book Club


Hosted by AFSB Vice President, Selinda Tuttle.

“Personally, I prefer to read books—fiction or non-fiction—that feature the city as a character,” says the book club’s curator, AFSB Vice President Selinda Tuttle. “The only thing cooler than reading a book that reckons with a city is being able to talk about that book with people who find it just as worthy of conversation.”

May’s Book:
The Castle on Sunset by Shawn Levy
6-8:00 PM Wednesday, May 25, 2022
229 East Victoria Street, Santa Barbara 93101
