Great Conversations

For the past nine years our group has been discussing short stories, essays and poetry, with a few novellas mixed in for flavor. We’ve even done a few documentary films. The subjects of our lively conversations? We floated deep into the Heart of Darkness with Joseph Conrad. We watched a Total Eclipse with Annie Dillard. We took a car ride with Flannery O’Connor’s grandmother who convinced us that A Good Man is Hard to Find. We observed the Century of Self through the lens of Freud’s nephew, Edward Bernays.

We hope you’ll join us on the fourth Wednesday of every month from 2-4 p.m. at local libraries for sparkling, cordial conversations about shoes and ships and sealing wax, not to mention cabbages and kings — and who knows what else? If you’d like to join us, or if you have questions, please contact Vera Mulherin at paxvera@netscape.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
