January Meetup—Dear Life: Stories

Dear Life: Stories
by Alice Munro

With her peerless ability to give us the essence of a life in often brief but spacious and timeless stories, Alice Munro illumines the moment a life is shaped -- the moment a dream, or sex, or perhaps a simple twist of fate turns a person out of his or her accustomed path and into another way of being. Suffused with Munro's clarity of vision and her unparalleled gift for storytelling, these stories (set in the world Munro has made her own: the countryside and towns around Lake Huron) about departures and beginnings, accidents, dangers, and homecomings both virtual and real, paint a vivid and lasting portrait of how strange, dangerous, and extraordinary the ordinary life can be.

    I'm so sorry to cancel last minute. I was very excited to meet up and discuss the book this week; however, I have a fire drill at work that has me in meetings until late tomorrow evening. I look forward to the next one!

    Hi all! We're going to try something new for our next Meetup. Since we've had enough people for at least two groups the last several months, I'm going to have us split up into groups of 5-7, so we can have a more manageable conversation. The first five to arrive will be seated together, and the next, and so forth, with stragglers joining existing groups.
