The Salon Book Club
In the Salon book club, we read books about writing. Very meta, we know. We've read Anne Lamott, Samuel Delany, bell hooks, Amy Tan, Kurt Vonnegut with Suzanne McConnell, and Ernest Hemingway.
Rather than discuss once, we read and practice with one book over eight to twelve weeks to explore how to bring the author's insights into our own writing.
For this quarter, we're reading two Ursula Le Guin books: Steering the Craft and Conversations on Writing with David Naimon, and meeting on these dates:
We meet every other Sunday to chat and play with prompts, taking time to integrate nuggets into our writing. It's encouraged to stick with the group for the duration, but totally understandable if schedule changes mean missing one or two. All members welcome, no need to sign up, just show up, virtually OR in person.
