June 2021 Book Club Meeting
The June meeting of the Book Club will be on Thursday, June 10, at 7:30 p.m. at the home of Elly Lindsay. Elly will lead us in a discussion of Greenlights, by Matthew McConaughey. From the Academy Award®-winning actor, Greenlights is an unconventional memoir filled with raucous stories, outlaw wisdom, and lessons learned the hard way about living with greater satisfaction. As McConaughey describes it, “It's a love letter. To life. It's also a guide to catching more greenlights-and to realizing that the yellows and reds eventually turn green too.”
We will also continue our year-long foray into Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, and for this month, will focus on O Captain! My Captain! There were four editions of Leaves of Grass published between 1855 and 1892 and many of the modern compilations are arranged based on who edited/published the book. For our purposes, any edition based on the 1891-92 4th and final edition should work. One with an index to the poems would be handy, since they can be arranged in different orders.
If those who would like to attend would please RSVP to Elly Lindsay by email, she will provide her address. Please note that the meeting will be in person.
Book Club generally meets on the second Wednesday of each month, but we will meet on a Thursday this month so as not to conflict with the Club’s Annual Meeting. For those who like to read ahead, our July book will be Humankind, Roger Bregman.
Date: Thursday, June 10, 2021
Time: 7:30 pm
Cost: FREE. To RSVP, please email Elly Lindsay.
