An informal discussion of books, film and theater, led by a facilitator. No requirements to read or see any particular book, film or play. Everyone is invited to share ideas and reflections on the selected theme.
This month: For the Love of Food – Given that Valentine’s Day is celebrated this month, what better topic to discuss than food and cuisine in books and films. Reflect on works you have seen or are currently reading. Is there food involved? How often do authors and directors weave in a meal or reference to food? How important is food to the development of the story or the characters? Why? Or, the lack of food? Join us for a fun discussion. Books: How to Cook a Wolf by MFK Fisher; Heartburn by Nora Ephron; Climbing the Mango Trees by Madhur Jaffrey; Blood, Bones & Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton. Films: Julie and Julia; The Lunchbox; Like Water for Chocolate; Babette’s Feast; Soylent Green to name just a few.
