A charming, ivy-covered nook nestled across the street from Fair Park, the Reading Room was opened as a conceptual — rather than commercial — venue. Owner Karen Weiner characterizes it as “a place for things to happen that don’t happen elsewhere.” The Reading Room exhibits explore the way words and images interact through video, print, photography, installation — even embroidery. Art fans and literary lovers can align at the annual Book Swap.
