Look to the MFAH for good books and great conversations! The two MFAH house museums host a discussion series about books on life in America and Europe in the 1700s and 1800s. Meeting alternately at Rienzi and Bayou Bend, this history book club offers free discussions every other month.

► The March selection, Women and Their Gardens: A History from the Elizabethan Era to Today by Catherine Horwood, chronicles not only the history of the British women and the world of botany, horticulture, but also the reflection of gardens in art, literature, and the domestic sphere.
