Book Discussion from the Writer's Perspective

Join us at Quail Ridge Books at 6:30pm on Saturday August 31 for our series discussing books from a writer’s perspective. This event is free to attend, and newcomers are welcome.

Our featured book will be Toni Morrison's BELOVED. Each month we feature a different book and we will discuss the stories using the five-point framework of 1) character, 2) plot, 3) setting, 4) style, and 5) theme. Additionally, we will discuss how the story came to be published, how its publication impacted the author’s career, and how the story fits within its cultural and historical contexts and how it influenced other writers.

Please plan to have read or at least have some familiarity with BELOVED. This is not a requirement, of course, but it is encouraged.

    I started my writing career in 1972 as a journalist, spent the next 30 years as a technical writer and editor, then in 2003 began a business on line editing manuscripts and preparing books for publication. Now I am working on my first novel. I am looking forward to learning all I can from members of the group.
