Firelei Baez, one of the artists featured in the ongoing citywide Prospect.3 series of exhibits, will host a discussion of Junot Diaz’s novel “The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao” tonight at the Nix Library in Carrollton.

Baez is a visual artist who creates intricate, large-format works, according to her website. The discussion about the novel will be from 6 to 7 p.m. tonight (Thursday, Jan. 15) at the library, 1401 South Carrollton Avenue.

“[Prospect.3 Artistic Director Franklin] Sirmans’s thoughtful consideration of the role that books and literature play in our collective understanding of the world is at the heart of P.3,” according to a listing of Prospect events. “The P.3Reads series aims to utilize the shared sense of community that comes from reading as an entrée for audiences who are curious about contemporary art, and would like to better understand the creative processes of contemporary artists. For those already familiar with contemporary art, the series will offer a deeper perspective on the relationship between literature and other art forms.”
