The Salon Book Club
In the Salon book club, we read books about writing, like Anne Lamott and Samuel Delany and Stephen King. Very meta, we know.
Rather than discuss once, we read and practice with one book over eight to ten weeks. Beginning in October, we will be reading Remembered Rapture by bell hooks and meeting on these dates:
We meet every other Sunday to talk and play with prompts, taking time to digest and integrate nuggets into our writing. It's encouraged that you try to come to all meetings, but totally understandable that's not always possible. And no need to sign up, just show up (right now virtually, of course). All members and passes welcome.
Future book suggestions and discussion ideas very welcome or email us to get in on the Google group (email firstname.lastname@example.org). To get a taste of Book Club, here is a collection of quotes and exercises from our last two books: Anne Lamott's Bird By Bird and Samuel Delany's About Writing.
