The First Rule Of Book Club Is That We Talk About Books.
If This Is Your First Time At John's Book Club - There Will Be Stories & Poems
In this week's book club we look at two pieces with a little more density, Araby by James Joyce, and Crosseyed Mother by poet Gabriela Mistral. Both pieces take a little time to give up their mysteries. We ponder of the value of staying with it and not reacting in order ourselves to enjoy the greater pleasure of having to meet the text on its terms rather than our own.
