Book Discussion from the Writer's Perspective

Join us at Quail Ridge Books at 6:30pm on Saturday July 13 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 Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD. 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 THE ROAD. This is not a requirement, of course, but it is encouraged.

    I hope people can arrive a little early to visit with me and my wife. I'm considering a move to the area and we're in town for a week checking out the area and the people we'd want to associate with.
