Opportunities and Announcements: Week of November 28

It’s time to choose the next novel for our BWW Literature Reading Series! winter-2017-novel-poll






The group recently finished its best season yet with the reading of William Faulkner’s Absalom, Absalom! and we’re ready to start on a new novel this coming January. There’s still room in this dedicated group of readers who meet each Tuesday evening in Burlington to share their experiences and perspectives of some of history’s most celebrated novels.

As with each season, the current participants have voted among themselves to come up with their top 3 choices for the next novel:

  1. Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master & Margarita
  2. Toni Morrison’s Beloved
  3. Malcolm Lowry’s Under the Volcano

Now, it’s the larger BWW community’s turn to weigh in. Voting is open through Friday, December 9, 2016. Vote now >


Stories by the Fire:

In addition to the opportunity above, don’t forget about It Happened One December: Stories by the Fire, our oral storytelling event coming up on Saturday, December 10, 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.  For the second year, the BWW will present Stories by the Fire around the hearth at Hotel Vermont. This oral storytelling event features 8 first-person, true stories—each about 8 minutes long—told without notes in the style of The Moth.

Produced by BWW oral stories leader Deena Frankel and hosted by BWW member Gin Ferrara, this event is free and open to the public. Our media sponsor for the event is RETN. RSVP now >

Also, a reminder that all BWW members are invited to the “Afternoon of Poetry and Friends” book launch and reception for BWW member Anne Averyt’s recently published poetry chapbook, Autumn’s Yard. The reception will be held on Thursday, December 1 from 4:30 to 6:30 at Chef’s Corner South End on Flynn Avenue, just below Pine Street.
