September Book Club Meeting

All,

I hope you're enjoying your summer, despite how humid and miserable it's been this past week. Hard to believe we're already nearing the fall and time to start book club meetings again! As temporary book club leader, Chip has made a September selection as well as an optional additional read for those who have the time. 

We will reserve space for a September 20th meeting (7-9pm as usual), but if this date is not doable for you, please let me know and if we have enough objections, we can work on finding a better time. 

September book: Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
Review: http://www.nytimes.com/2002/09/15/books/my-big-fat-greek-gender-identity-crisis.html?pagewanted=all

Additionally, if you have the time, members are encouraged to read a book (any book) by Jennifer Weiner '91. The group will discuss Weiner's writing and storytelling style, experimenting with having members read various selections by one author instead of having the entire group  focus on the same book. Additionally, there will be an effort to arrange a small event with Weiner sometime this fall, which may interest some of the book club members. 

All the best,
Linsay and Chip

June Book Club Meeting

All:

 

First, apologies for the delay in reaching out. The book club had a reportedly lovely meeting on May 18th to discuss Digging to America by Anne Tyler. 

 

On May 13th my husband and I welcomed our first child, a baby boy named Jack, who has completely monopolized our time since, but we've enjoyed every minute!

 

Chip Jerry communicated to me that it was decided at the May meeting to have one final meeting this spring and then take a hiatus in July and August. Additionally, he suggested that for the sake of time, we forgo the usual vote and instead have the group read Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World and Me. 

 

  • In a profound work that pivots from the biggest questions about American history and ideals to the most intimate concerns of a father for his son, Ta-Nehisi Coates offers a powerful new framework for understanding our nation’s history and current crisis. Americans have built an empire on the idea of “race,” a falsehood that damages us all but falls most heavily on the bodies of black women and men—bodies exploited through slavery and segregation, and, today, threatened, locked up, and murdered out of all proportion. What is it like to inhabit a black body and find a way to live within it? And how can we all honestly reckon with this fraught history and free ourselves from its burden?Between the World and Me is Ta-Nehisi Coates’s attempt to answer these questions in a letter to his adolescent son. Coates shares with his son—and readers—the story of his awakening to the truth about his place in the world through a series of revelatory experiences, from Howard University to Civil War battlefields, from the South Side of Chicago to Paris, from his childhood home to the living rooms of mothers whose children’s lives were taken as American plunder. Beautifully woven from personal narrative, reimagined history, and fresh, emotionally charged reportage, Between the World and Me clearly illuminates the past, bracingly confronts our present, and offers a transcendent vision for a way forward.

 

Unless there is significant conflict with the date, I will reserve a room on Wednesday, June 29th at 7pm for the next meeting. 

 

All the best,

Linsay
