ICC Book Club - March 22nd
When:March 22, 2017
Event Time:6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Where:India Community Center
The next meeting of the ICC Book Club will take place on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 6 PM, and the book selected for discussion is Randa Jarrar's "Him, Me, Muhammad Ali". It is a short story collection, only the second one we have discussed so far. (Bharati Mukherjee's "The Middleman and Other Stories" was our first).
The exciting feature in March will be the participation of the author Randa Jarrar via SKYPE or Face Time.
It should be fun to see how the discussion goes. One suggestion is for each of us to talk about our favorite story in the collection, and see if and how it connects with the other stories. Other suggestions to steer the discussion are welcome.
For those of you who did not attend the January meeting, I have to tell you it was quite a challenge to wrap up the meeting on time! As expected, the politics of the day kept intruding on the discussion. While some of you said that Kwan's narrative felt intrusive and contrived, there were others who appreciated Amy Tan's good humor, as well as the unique characterization of Kwan. Still, whatever the reason, all of us had a lot to say. Ratings ranged from a low of 2.5 to 7.
Looking forward to the next meeting on March 22 at 6 PM.
