How to find us

I'll add a location closer to the event. For now, I'm going to map it to Notre Dame Cathedral itself, because I'm maudlin and sentimental like that right now. Please do not show up on the Ile de la Cité on May 29. Or take me with you. :)

*EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO THE END OF THE MONTH*

I'm sad and in shock about the fire damage done to Notre Dame Cathedral today.

I've never read The Hunchback of Notre Dame (originally titled Notre Dame de Paris). Victor Hugo wrote it as a deliberate attempt to save the cathedral itself, which was dilapidated at the time and in danger of being torn down entirely. The character of Quasimodo was written as a metaphor for the cathedral.

So I'm going to read the book. I'm making a meetup of it, in case anyone else would like to share the journey with me. I may have to reschedule it out by a month myself. If anyone is interested in such a book club meetup, but needs a different day, time, week, or month, I'm wide open to rescheduling for others' convenience, as well. Please do contact me if you have any interest.
