Beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, June 21 at Academy Art Museum, artist Joëlle Dautricourt will present a lecture and question-and-answer session titled "The Book of Happy Writing". Dautricourt expresses the mystical, symbolic and divine forces within the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet in works evoking Holocaust memory and joyful freedom.

Dautricourt, a Paris-born graphic artist and sculptor, explores Jewish writing and its graphic poetry along two lines: avant-garde modern books and Hebrew typography and calligraphy. Her latest creation, "The Book of Happy Writing" was inspired by the second verse of Psalm 45: "My tongue is the pen of an expert scribe". A dessert reception will follow the program.
