Hi everyone – just a reminder about this Monday’s meeting – 7:15 PM to discuss The Virgin Suicides. And in view of the focus on Suicide, we will have 2-3 counselors from SAFER joining us (Suicide Attempt Follow-up, Education and Research is a community-based outpatient counseling service ) in order that they may share their reactions to the book.
These are the books til June –
January 21 — The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
February 18 — Manuscript Feedback for author, Anne Stone (Special Guest, Anne Stone) see http://annestone.net/
March 18 — Tangles by Sarah Leavitt (Special Guest, Sarah Leavitt) see http://www.sarahleavitt.com/tangles/
April 15 — We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
May 20 — Human Traces by Sebastian Faulks
June 17 — Atmospheric Disturbances by Rikva Galchen
And apologies from the UBC Book Store. They apparently ran out of copies of The Virgin Suicides but will be sure to have the rest of the books in stock.
And please see attached – this is the manuscript-in-progress that we will be discussing with Anne herself on Feb 18th.
Finally, coffee and tea will be provided. BUT – If you wish to discreetly bring in home-made or store-bought food (cookies? cheese and crackers?) to help facilitate a congenial discussion, I think that will be okay provided it’s not obtained from another caterer and that we clean up meticulously!
And please tell your colleagues – we still need a slightly larger critical mass!
