Bring your copies of John Steinbeck’s classic, OF MICE AND MEN (1937, 107 pp.), and be prepared to discuss!
This book club will meet each month to examine and discuss novels that use compelling stories and characters to raise important social issues, including those related to gender, race and ethnicity, and class. Attendees are encouraged to actively participate in all our discussions. More questions? Feel free to contact Bob Lamm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The club will be led by Bob, a writer who teaches at NYU. His political articles, personal essays, interviews and profiles, and fiction have appeared in more than 50 outlets-—among them the New York Times, the Village Voice, Ms. Magazine, nytheatre.com, and the ACT NOW New York blog—and in five anthologies. He writes about city life, feminist issues, Jewish issues, theater, and television. He has taught nursery school, junior high English, high school history, and at five universities (Yale, Queens College, the New School, the CUNY Graduate Center, and NYU). He is a proud “child of the ’60s” who has been a radical and a political activist ever since.
