How to Read a Novel in 3 Easy Steps

Together we’ll explore the powers and drawbacks of long-form storytelling. We’ll spend our half-hour together talking novels. There’s no homework and nothing you need to do to prepare ahead of time!

During our time together we’ll focus on plot, character and the power of the novel to transform the worlds it represents.

Great Stories Read Aloud

This course features great stories that are not necessarily well known but are classics (or deserve to be). For example, the first story was The Bat Poet, an award-winning folktale by Randall Jarrett about a young bat who is unable to sleep during the day. For April 23 we will read “Wolf Story,” by William McCleery, a book about a father making up a story with the very active help of his five-year-old son and his son’s friend Stefan.  The stories are great for K-2 kids, but older kids and precocious 4-year-olds will like them too. I have been reading aloud for decades, and my (young adult) children will join me.
