For this month we are reading The Delicacy and Strength of Lace, which is the correspondence between the poet James Wright and the novelist Leslie Marmon Silko. Here is the synopsis from Amazon:
Leslie Marmon Silko and James Wright met only twice. First, briefly, in 1975, at a writers’ conference in Michigan. Their correspondence began three years later, after Wright wrote to Silko praising her book Ceremony. The letters began formally, and then each writer gradually opened to the other, sharing his or her life, work, and struggles. The second meeting between the two writers came in a hospital room, as Wright lay dying of cancer.
We will meet again on February 9th, 8:30 pm. Hope to see you all then. And remember that we would still like to a add a few new members to the group. Perhaps some guys? So invite some like-minded literary friends to come along.
