Q & A with the Poetry Book Club

May 25th, we're discussing Towards the Forest by Holaday Mason.  In case you haven't made it out to a Poetry Book Club meeting, I asked Jean Larson, one of the leaders, some questions about the book club and the upcoming meetings.

How are the books chosen?  The original attendees nominated options by email last August and September and brainstormed a great list. Then we voted for our top picks.  So far this effort continues to provide us with a reading list.

What can you tell us about May's author?  Holaday Mason lives in California, and even emailed me after she googled herself and found that we’d chosen her book to study.

Any particulars you're excited about discussing?  Holaday’s line, “I might have been anyone”

What’s next?
Tuesday, June 29th:  The Wellspring by Sharon Olds
Tuesday, July 27th:  In the Bird Museum by Kristy Bowen
Tuesday, August 31st: National Monuments by Heid Erdrich

See you at the next Poetry Book Club meeting.  (last Tuesday of every month)

Please email Jean at jeanielars@comcast.net for more information.
