"Contemporary Classics" - Sleeping on Jupiter

Patricia Holt's monthly book discussion group

Wednesday, March 1
6:30pm
Bookstore
$90 for 5-book series / $20 for individual session
Patricia Holt, former book editor at the San Francisco Chronicle, continues her popular book group, “Contemporary Classics.” A book should stand the test of time before becoming a classic, but very often, critics and literary judges leap to praise books as “instant classics” soon after publication. These are the titles Pat’s group will hold up to scrutiny—in fact, the chewier, more literary, more dense, and "hard to read" the better. One needn't have read widely, studied literature, or learned about literary criticism to join. Just drop in or join us for the whole series, and let the developing wisdom of the group be your only guide.
