WE ARE ACTIVELY SEEKING NEW MEMBERS FOR OUR MONTHLY DINNER AND A CLASSIC BOOK MEETUPS AND FOR OUR POETRY SHARING MEETUPS!
RSVP TO JOIN US FOR A NOVEL AND A GREAT MEAL AND OR FOR OUR POETRY SHARING SESSIONS.
MEET THE GROUP AND HELP US PLAN FUTURE FUN DINNER AND A CLASSIC BOOK MEETUPS AND
FUTURE POETRY SHARING MEETUPS!
This is a group for those interested in reading a great classic fiction book then participating in a lightly moderated book discussion with group members while eating a great meal out once a month and also for those interested in attending Poetry Sharing Meetups where we share our writing and poetry we are fond of. We also discuss poetry writing tips and help each other revise our writing.
Please check the future Meetups schedule and RSVP for Meetups.
ERIE DINNER AND A CLASSIC BOOK:
I started this group to meet others who enjoy classic and modern classic fiction and to motivate myself to read classic fiction books that I have yet to enjoy. Oh! The food was an important reason as well!
Erie Dinner and a Classic Book Discussion Group meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:30 P.M.
We choose our book selections as a group and they are posted approximately three months in advance of the Meetup for each book selection.
The Erie Dinner and a Classic Book Discussion Group members have decided to use the following general discussion questions because we feel they provide a good starting point for creating our own dynamic, interesting and entertaining discussion of our Meetup book of the month!
1. What was unique about the setting of the book and how did it enhance or take away from the story?
2. What specific themes did the author emphasize throughout the novel? What do you think he or she is trying to get across to the reader?
3. Do the characters seem real and believable? Can you relate to their predicaments? To what extent do they remind you of yourself or someone you know?
4. How do characters change or evolve throughout the course of the story? What events trigger such changes?
5. In what ways do the events in the books reveal evidence of the author's world view?
6. Did certain parts of the book make you uncomfortable? If so, why did you feel that way? Did this lead to a new understanding or awareness of some aspect of your life you might not have thought about before?
POETRY SHARING MEETUPS:
I started this group to meet others who enjoy writing and reading poetry and to motivate myself to write on a regular basis and to take the time to read the poetry that I love. At the Meetups we share poetry we have written, help with revision if the member asks for it and share poetry that we love.
COME JOIN US!
Please email or call Organizer, Margaret if you have questions about our groups.
Most of our Dinner and a Book Meetups and Poetry Sharing Meetups are in Erie, especially during the winter.
