Thank you all for expressing your interest in the Bonnie Doon Book Club which I am tentatively calling Skyward Stories. I am looking forward to connecting with all of you to hear your unique thoughts and perspectives about our upcoming book, The Lathe of Heaven (1971) by Ursula K Le Guin.
“In a future world racked by violence and environmental catastrophes, George Orr wakes up one day to discover that his dreams have the ability to alter reality. He seeks help from Dr. William Haber, a psychiatrist who immediately grasps the power George wields.”
This is a wonderful book by an outstanding author. It won or was nominated for the Hugo, Locus, and Nebula awards. It is a short read and there is plenty of time until our first discussion.
To acquire this book, I’ve outlined some methods below:
- EPL for physical (3 in total all checked out unfortunately) and virtual copies (including audiobook)
- Used bookstores (suggest calling first)
- Major retailers, of course
My goal is to meet every 1-2 months, have a structured meeting which I will facilitate, and an agenda which I will share closer to June 26. The format will likely evolve based on our group.
Since we are limiting attendance to community league members (join BDCL), we have free access to the hall and have a small budget for drinks and snacks.
ps, Did you know Bonnie Doon has at least six Little Free Libraries!
