August critical reading

The end of summer is quickly approaching. Why not spend a few of these dwindling hours with us discussing complex, compelling literature? This month, the critical reading workshop will be reading Nadine Gordimer’s City Lovers, a story of an interracial love affair in apartheid South Africa. An audio recording of this story can be found here.

We’ll be meeting Wednesday August 16th at 19th at 7pm at the restaurant of the Double Tree Suites Downtown.

Each month, the critical reading workshop meets to read the work of a published author from a writer’s perspective, breaking down what makes the story work and why. It’s one of the best ways you can improve as a writer. Never been to a workshop? Check out our FAQ.

This event is free and open to the public, and you do not need to be a CCC member to attend.

The Doubletree Suites Hotel is located at 50 S Front St. Columbus 43215. The first six floors of the building are a parking garage, and the floor above that is marked “Lobby”—that’s where we’ll be. On that floor is a swanky pub/restaurant. You can park either in the aforementioned parking garage or at the meters right outside the building on Front St. If you’re parked in the garage, you don’t need to leave the building, simply find the elevator and take it up to the floor marked “Lobby.” If you’re on the street, go through the sliding doors and the elevators will be on your right.

Check back next week when we’ll be posting discussion questions for you to mull over before the meetup.

Questions? Comments? Got a story you’d love to discuss? Send them to the workshop moderator at nick@columbuscoop.org. See you there!
