Dive deep into five books in this series of workshops dedicated to elevate the way you approach reading.
We will study five works of literature, both fiction and memoir/non-fiction, over the course of ten months. In each workshop, we will examine the author's life, the book's structure, powerful passages and themes. You will also be led in a writing session with prompts generated from the books we read.
Want a fresh approach to how your current book club analyzes books? This series is for you.
These workshops are also helpful for writers - hobbyist and professional. It is through studying other writers that we can learn and grow ourselves as writers.
