Let's Talk ..

With the sophomore jinx now out of the way - this evening's animated conversation included eight energized participants discussing moral courage - my initial trepidation about this newest adventure has mostly faded.  

Reflections From The Bell Curve: Harnessing My Trepidation

In addition to my gratitude to the local librarian for suggesting I moderate this monthly salon, I'm also thankful to the folks who've signed up so far, either for the maiden voyage in November discussing film noir, or for this second outing. Special thanks to those who've been at both conversations. And pleased as I've been to see a few familiar faces at one or the other event, I'm even more pleased to meet new people interested in the topics I'm selecting. I now eagerly anticipate January's discussion on memoirs. 

In the meanwhile, I want to re-extend an invitation to any local reader interested in getting involved. You can contact me either via a comment here or reach out offline however you wish. I'll get back to you immediately so you can join whichever future conversations pique your interest.

  1. I love the word salon. The Utne Reader years ago had an article on salons and I thought it would be something I would enjoy. And yes, indeed I have. Last night's discussion was like a breath of fresh air. An interesting group of people sharing thoughts, ideas, articles, etc. on a special topic. I am so glad to have been part of it.

    1. Ines; Goes without saying that I'm so pleased you've decided to get involved. Interestingly, I was part of an Utne Reader salon for several years.

    1. Bob; Glad January 4 is on your calendar. Here's hoping something doesn't get in your way next time. But, if so, no worries. There's always February, subject TBD.
