A Closer Look Book Club

This year, the Poetry Center’s Closer Look Book Club will discuss works of fiction. Poet and novelist Stephen Dobyns observes, “We read in part to lose consciousness of our surroundings and to be a different person when we return to them.” All our novels this year are set in the United States. In the fall semester, we’ll read stories of society and people changing and in the spring semester, retrospectives of things changed, societal and personal. From each of these reading experiences, we may come back as somewhat different people than we were before.

A Closer Look Book Club is a project of the Poetry Center docents. To participate in a Book Club conversation, just read the book and join us in the Miriam Endicott Emley Room at the Poetry Center (Room 207). No sign-up is necessary. The Club is free and open to the public, and you’re welcome to participate in as many or as few meetings as you like. For more information, contact poetry@email.arizona.edu.
