All book clubs have been cancelled for the month of March!
Join us for the March meeting of the Browsers Modern Poetry Book Club. We will discuss Time by Etel Adnan.
Our book discussions aim to bring people together to talk about books in a safe and inviting atmosphere. Our meetings are inclusive; we invite all readers of poetry to attend. You don't have to RSVP, just come and enjoy a lively discussion about the chosen book with other readers. The books are available in store at 15% off if you plan to attend the book club.
Every meeting explores a different poet through discussion and reading aloud.
A bit more about the author and the book:
Etel Adnan was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1925, the daughter of a Greek Christian from Smyrna and a high- ranking Ottoman officer from Damascus. Her work as a whole is a faithful record of the times and places she has lived in Beirut, Paris, and in the San Francisco Bay Area. At least eighteen works by Adnan have been published in English.
Adnan’s Time is a book that crosses continents, encounters wars and heartbreaks, and looks brazenly at one’s own mortality. And these poems do exactly what Adnan states, “I would like to reflect like a / buoy, thrown out from the depths / to the luminous mortal surface / of the sea.”-Jennifer Firestone, Tarpaulin Sky
