November 20th and December 4th from 3-5pm
Odyssey Afternoon Book Discussions — The Personal Essay
Sunday Shorts at the Johns Hopkins Club, Homewood campuscropped-img_0928.jpg

Judith Krummeck has chosen eight of her favorite personal essayists, ranging in style, period, gender, and nationality. In the first session, we will take a ruminative walk around Virginia Woolf’s London; we’ll be privy to the crack-up of F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1936 and of Cheryl Strayed’s in 2002; and Italy’s Natalia Ginsburg will give us an amusingly astute portrait of her marriage of opposites. In the second session, we will experience a migraine with Joan Didion; blindness with Jorge Luis Borges; an aching reflection of 9/11 from Brian Doyle; and we’ll end with David Foster Wallace gamely pushing the boundaries of form.
