Remarkable Books I (II and III)

So What Will the 21st Century Look like?

OLLI Study Group OLLI Study Group
In March, The New York Times Book Review featured 15 books by women that their critics see as “opening new realms to us, whose books suggest and embody unexplored possibilities in form, feeling and knowledge.” They say these books set the agenda for the 21st century. So the question for this class is: what does that agenda look like?

Before the first meeting I will send the NYT article to participants so they can read the short reviews of each book. At the first meeting we will select 4 of these to begin to answer our “research” question. We’ll read approximately 100 pages a week. We’ll have discussion, small group analysis in class, occasional lectures on style, structure, etc.

Lecturer Sharon Quiroz has a PhD. in English, has published poetry and short stories, and is currently working on her second novel while she tries to sell the first one. This study group for those 50 and above will meet Thursdays, 1:30-3:30, from September 20 - December 13.
