Want Book Club with Lynn Steger Strong
Wednesday, October 7, 7:00 PM ET

Want attempts to be about a lot of things, but one of its underlying tensions is both the limits and the power of reading and thinking and writing in the broader world. Over a period of six months, looking at six different books, all of which are mentioned in WANT, we will talk about what different books accomplish, how they portray individual experiences worth seeing and considering and putting out into the broader world, how these books are constructed and what that says about the choices made in the process of construction. We will think about the conversation each of these books are a part of, how they push them forward, what they're saying and showing that is new and necessary to be heard. In thinking too about the limits of books and talking, each Zoom link will include a link to an organization that is doing concrete on the ground work in the worlds these books are exploring. 

This month's title: Good Morning, Midnight by Jean Rhys
