A blurb from Julie:

"This could be an exciting way to keep our hearts and minds alive and in connection with each other despite social distancing and isolation. Apparently on Zoom we can all see and hear each other just like we can in the library. 

We will discuss each novel like we always do. One novel is, of course by the rule, changed. The fourth novel was about the Spanish flu, not a good idea right now. Instead we will read The Book Thief by Marcus Zustak.

I will open with a brief lecture from Jung´s essay on ˋThe Child‘ and then on to this most delightful book, The Snow Child.

I hope you all are excited to experiment with this new way of connecting."

Julie has requested for this program to be held as a live Zoom session, with active video and audio participation from the audience as they desire throughout.


Five Alternate Mondays

March 30 | April 13, 27 | May 11, 25

Innocence, Experience, Higher Innocence. Using William Blake’s paradigm,  and Jung’s essay on The Child (Vol 9 1) we will read five novels about the child. We will start with The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey, which some of you have read before, to bring the importance of the child in an adult’s perspective. This will be followed by: A Death in the Family by James Agee, A Member of the Wedding by Carson McCullers and They Came Like Swallows by William Maxwell The Book Thief by Marcus Zustak which are all from the child’s perspective, and finally Margaret Atwood’s Cat’s Eye to look specifically at the effects of childhood trauma on adult psyches.
