Many of us have poems, novels, stories, essays that we return to in thought and often by re-reading—the words that have stayed with us during our lives. These become our touchstones, the words against we measure what we read and the words that have helped us make sense of the chaos of our lives. In this colloquy participants will be responsible for bringing in their own touchstones: poetry and prose for all of us to read and talk about.
Facilitator Marge Irvine and colloquy participants have provided the literary touchstones which we will discuss together during each of the four sessions of the colloquy. See below under “Syllabus/Reading.”
