We will consider recent works of non-fiction, allowing two sessions for each book. We will focus on evidence, arguments and conclusions as well as on the rhetorical strategies employed by the authors. More generally, we will consider the nature of the non-fiction genre itself. Members will divide up responsibility for leading discussions. The Book List is chosen by the group. Note that the list of books is alphabetical. Actual reading order is decided by members of the group.
THIS GROUP IS CURRENTLY FULL.
A waiting list will be kept; to add your name to the list contact Gail Kingwell at the link below. If there is sufficient interest we will assist in the formation of a new Interest Group.
