Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Di?
On Wednesday March 25th We will read Joan Didion's non-fiction account of the year following the death of her husband John Gregory Dunne.
Didion's mourning follows a traditional arc?she describes just how precisely it cleaves to the medical descriptions of grief?but her elegant rendition of its stages leads to hard-won insight, particularly into the after effects of marriage.
April 22 we will read the Mayor's Book Club selection the Septembers of Shiraz. Friday April 24 we will meet the author at City Hall at 6pm. Refer to the calendar for more information.
