Want to get even MORE out of what you read?

Back by popular demand, Kimberly Ford will lead a second 90-minute session to help you appreciate literature more deeply. Whether you attended Lit. 101 or not, this second session promises to be energizing, engaging and informative. The group will delve into foundational literary concepts such as voice, characterization, success with taboo subjects, and the difficulty of really good humor—all by looking at THE GREATS.

In Kimberly’s enthusiastic and knowledgeable hands, masters such as Nabokov, Toni Morrison, Mavis Gallant, Hemingway, Ta-Nehisi Coates and Kingsley Amis, (among others) will leave you with the very best understanding of “basics” that we didn’t cover in Lit 101.

If you didn't have a chance to take college lit. (or can't quite remember what you learned), this seminar will give you the tools to build a great foundation and enable you to get more out of what you read.

No need to read anything in advance as all excerpts will be provided. Simply come, listen and learn!
