On Thursday, November 2, the Highland Park Arts Commission held its second Book Art Workshop of the year, led by Arts Commissioner Amée J. Pollack. 20 community members participated in this workshop, learning how to bind a book cover, and think about how image, text, structure work together to convey meaning and or tell a story in order to create a “keepsake book”.
