Summer Book Club: Tell the Wolves I'm Home, Tuesday, 8/5, 3-4pm

Tuesday, 8/5, 3-4pm


On Tuesday, August 5th we will meet to discuss the stunning, debut novel Tell the Wolves I'm Home (Dial Press, 2012) by American writer Carol Rifka Brunt. Set in New York in the 1980s, with AIDS rapidly on the rise, this book tells the heart-rending story of two lonely and unlikely friends -- a fourteen year old girl named June and her late uncle's friend, Toby, who find each other through the process of loss and renewal. In preparation, please see the author's great questions for book groups and also choose a favorite segment of the novel to read! --- Are you reading a great book and wish to share your experience with it? If so, then Summer Book Club is just the place for you! Come join a group of avid readers to read aloud and discuss works that stun, absorb, and stretch your mind. From coming-of-age, to biography, through to historical fiction, our focus will be on reading, oral interpretation, and conversation about books that embrace learning and education in all its forms. Oral interpretation, you say?! It's the art of interpretative or dramatic reading to better understand what we read -- and experience it more fully and enjoyably! It's verbally expressing and sharing works of literature with knowledge of an author's intention. Many things are possible as we ponder the new learning theater…. So bring your ideas and reading recommendations, as we kick start the hazy, hot days of summer. This program is open to members and affiliated members of Teachers College. Please rsvp with your details and interest via online support. Where: 104b Russell
