Do you like dinosaurs? Well an asteroid named Chicxulub certainly did not. Join us for this month’s Critical Reading Workshop where we’ll focus on T.C. Boyle’s Chicxulub, a story that explores annihilation through the heavy use of literary technique. The full text of this story can be found here.
This month’s workshop will be Wednesday Sept. 13th at 7 pm 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.
