Booker and Beyond Book Club

Contributed by Dorothy Yuan

After the enforced hiatus to our monthly meetings the group was finally allowed to meet outdoors in the courtyard.  Fortunately, the number was kept at exactly ten and an active discourse progressed, albeit through voices muffled by masks.  It turns out that few of us enjoyed reading The Vexations,by Caitlin Horrocks, the book chosen for this session.Nonetheless, Ann Carlson lead us through an interesting discussion on the “vexations” engendered in the readers by the author, a discussion that amply shows, again, the value of our book club.

 

Hopefully, we will be able to resume full activity by our next meeting, scheduled for July 15.  The book chosen for that session is The Dutch House by Ann Patchett.  The meeting is open to ALL.  Even if you choose not to read the book you’ll find the discussion interesting.

  1. Julia, Why did this come up on Facebook? I hardly ever use it and was very surprised! Jeanne
