Dear Friends and Readers,
Last time I mentioned my discussion group, which meets twice a month. Participation is informal—there’s no membership and no sign-up sheet; many people drop in only occasionally. Perhaps you will, too. After tomorrow, our next meeting will be on September 27.
Here is the Zoom link for tomorrow’s gathering at 6:30 PM. (The link is good for subsequent ones also.)
The books under discussion will be Where the Crawdads Sing and All the Light We Cannot See. Both novels are extraordinarily satisfying to read. Attached are copies of their dust covers. On the agenda for Sept. 27 are two nonfiction books.
A reminder: My columns have started to appear in the online version of thecheyennepost.com If you type my name into its search engine, you’ll be directed to my writing. It would be nice if you left a comment below one that appealed to you—but you’ll have to scroll past the ads to the box, “Leave a Comment.”
On another note, an essay of mine has been accepted in the inaugural issue of Syncopation. “Chaos and Consolation” is a look back on a chaotic childhood and teen years and the occasional consolation of music. It’s the first acceptance I’ve had this year—and Syncopation won’t even be released until about February of next year. Syncopation is a journal that solicits creative nonfiction on experiences with music.
I hope to see you virtually tomorrow or next time.
