A Book Group: Reading Critically Acclaimed Literary Works (8 Monthly Meetings)

Nancy Geyer

This class will meet once a month to discuss eight literary works. The selections have been made from novels, collections of short stories, and memoirs that have received critical acclaim from peers, reviewers, and the reading public. Led by author and writing instructor Nancy Geyer, the course will differ from a lecture format in that class members will be encouraged to participate in the discussion of the monthly book assignment. It is patterned on the classic formula of book clubs that became popular in the early 20th century and continue to the present day. Emphasis will be placed on characterization, plot, structure, dialogue, style, and atmosphere.

This class will meet onsite at WIH.
(Limited to 15 students)
