Lets Talk About It Series - The Summer Before the Dark
Come hear Dr. Abigail Keegan speak and participate in a small discussion group on Doris Lessing's 'The Summer Before the Dark'.
Nobel Laureate Lessing creates Kate Brown, a British woman facing the “empty nest syndrome,” and explores the mythical truth that can be found in dreams. Brown must journey away from her home and the roles and responsibilities attached to it and toward her inner self for survival.
Oklahoma City University invites participants to make these books come alive in the readings of this five-part series. At each session, a Humanities scholar will make a 30-40 minute presentation on the book in the context of the theme. Small group discussion will follow with experienced discussion leaders. At the end, everyone will come together for a brief wrap-up. Anyone interested in participating by attending the sessions is encouraged to pre-register and borrow the reading selections by calling Harbour Winn at 208-5472, emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org, or dropping by the Dulaney-Browne Library, Room 211 or 207. (Note the offices are located in the five-story building southwest of Walker Center.)
