Join us on Thursday September 12th at 7:00 PM. We will meet to discuss this novel by Italo Calvino “If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller ”. We chose to meet again at “La Boulange du Dome”- at Westfield San Francisco Center right under the dome. The place was quiet enough and we were able to fit all the attendants. However, we will look for a different venue, and we are open to suggestions. It seems meeting in the Financial District is very convenient for the majority. So if you think of another place we can meet, shoot me an email.
We had a great time discussing the “Name of the Rose” yesterday, it was so very interesting to hear all of your observations. We are looking forward to meeting you again and hopefully, meeting new members!!
If you are just joining and/or did not have a chance to read the book, you are still welcome to come and meet us! We will pick the next book to read that day as well. Hope to see you there! James & Dilcia
If on a winter's night a traveler (Italian: Se una notte d'inverno un viaggiatore) is a 1979 novel by the Italian writer Italo Calvino. The narrative is about a reader trying to read a book called If on a winter's night a traveler. Every odd-numbered chapter is in the second person, and tells the reader what he is doing in preparation for reading the next chapter. The even-numbered chapters are all single chapters from whichever book the reader is trying to read. The book was published in an English translation by William Weaver in 1981 (From Wikipedia)
