“He told me once he wishes everyone could talk in silence.” The Chosen, Chapter 3
So you haven’t been to book club in awhile… or ever… yet… But
you’re thinking of joining us this book-club-Thursday! Well, here is a
glimpse of what you can expect: No we don’t “Talk in silence” 🙂
Once upon a time, on Thursdays, we meet and discuss our current read.
Simple. Read the book, bring it, if you’d like, come and enjoy the
company of others who share the joy of reading.
This time of year you’ll find us at Borders. What better place to
meet than at a book store…well, maybe a library…but this way we can
all enjoy a hot beverage from the cafe. And not have to whisper.
We usually visit a bit before we start. Often, we’ll do some simple
introductions if necessary.
Then we jump in.
This week well be discussing The Chosen by Chaim Potok. Possible
topics for discussion might be:
Silence: Was this a good thing?
Vision and perception: What happen to these boys eyes as they grew?
Both their physical sight and their view of life and the world around
The title: Why is this book titled The Chosen?
Females: Where are the women in this story?
Friendship: These friends were different in so many ways but were such
good friends, what made that work?
We often get out our TableTopics book club discussion cards at the end also.
And then we part, going our separate ways and live happily ever after to start the story over!
