An update from the Wonderland Book Group Team
Monday, May 3, 2010 2:11 PM
Dear Wonderland Book Group meet-uppers,
We are almost halfway through the year and the Wonderland Book Group is going from strength to strength. Published writer and Wonderland founder Alice Osborn keeps the discussion on track and gives us the benefit of her writing knowledge, while providing a deeper level of understanding regarding the author's language style and choices. This book group has already covered such great reads such as Geraldine Brooks' People of the Book and Louis Begley's About Schmidt this year.
We have also been lucky enough for local authors such as Connie Domino and Suzanne Adair to attend some of our meetings and talk to us about their writing, giving us an in-depth look into their writing process. The conversation certainly never flags in THIS book group!
On 21 May, we will be discussing Italo Calvino's If on a Winter's Night a Traveller, a slim and fascinating novel that will be guaranteed to provoke much discussion on what IS a novel, the importance of narrative voice and the difference in expectation and reality when reading a novel like this.
If you would like to continue to hear about the Wonderland Book Group meeting then there is no need to reply to this email. If, however, your circumstances have changed and you are no longer able to attend the book group please let me know and I will remove you from our mailing list.
Looking forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
