Club of Rhode Island Book Club Meeting


RISD READS brings the RISD alumni community together—in person and virtually—through books with the theme of creativity.

What are we reading?

Our Current Selection:

Twyla Tharp The Creative Habit Learn It and Use It for Life

The Creative Habit, Learn it and use it for life. Twyla Tharp

Keep an eye on your inbox for an invitation to our virtual book discussion on January 30. Everyone is welcome to join the conversation, even if you don't get to read the book. We cover general themes related to art, design and creativity that anyone can enjoy and contribute!
