April is the cruelest month (according to T.S. Eliot), so for this month’s critical reading discussion we’ll be reading Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber–a modern retelling of the French folktale of the notoriously cruel Bluebeard. The full text of this story can be found here.
This month’s discussion will be held Wednesday April 19 at 7 pm.
Each month, the 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 Capital Club is located on the lobby floor of the Doubletree Suites Hotel on South Front Street. Get more details in this ancient blog post.
Check back next week when we’ll be posting discussion questions for you to mull over before the meetup.
