Event Details

Zoom connection info is below.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about the books you’re reading, join SCI BC peer Lisa Hislop and the book club readers as we work our way through books we’ve always wanted to read (the books are available as audiobooks, digital and hard copy versions). Each week, we read about an hour of the book (or three chapters), then meet to discuss it. We go over what happened and dip our toes into literary analysis, discussing the plot, themes, characters, the author, the time period, and other influences. It usually takes us between 8 and 20 weeks to read the longer texts and 2 to 4 weeks for shorter stories and plays. Once we’re nearing the end of a book, we submit books we’d like to try and choose the group favourite for our next read. Feel free to pop in and check us out!

The group is reading Beloved by Toni Morrison.

According to Good Reads, Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Toni Morrison’s Beloved is a spellbinding and dazzlingly innovative portrait of a woman haunted by the past. Combining the visionary power of legend with the unassailable truth of history, Morrison’s unforgettable novel is one of the great and enduring works of American literature.
