Book T.A.L.K. (Talk About Literature in Kansas)

September 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Wood Fence between two houses

Our fall series is titled Between Fences. “Good fences make good neighbors,” Robert Frost famously declared in his poem “Mending Wall,” but not all fences do.

Fences mark our territory, define our boundaries, limit our movement, and convey our sense of property. We define ourselves and our space with fence. Metaphorically, fences can mark different states of being – ins and outs, the included and excluded, the sacred and taboo, and even life and death.

This fall we will read and discuss three books that explore the theme of fences and the living on one side or the other.

Our first Book T.A.L.K. will be Friday, September 20 at 10:00 am.

We will discuss The Tortilla Curtain, by T. C. Boyle.

Copies of the book will be available mid-August.
