“She read books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live.” – Annie Dillard
Reading is and always has been my oxygen, my sanctuary. When I was young, the common refrain was, “she always has her nose in a book”. Books sustain me, stir me, and soothe me, and I have always delighted in the fact that the MotherHouse of the Goddess community was well-populated with bibliophiles like me!
Not only do I love to read books, but I love to talk about books, to share quotes, exchange ideas, and to see what discussion grows from the inspirations gleaned in the pages. To that end …
WELCOME TO GODDESS BOOK CHAT – our free book discussion group!
This group is a new iteration of our Literary Goddess Circle which focused on just one book at a time. Goddess Book Chat is going to be more dynamic with prompts to inspire a discussion of as many books as we want to explore in our time together!
Registration, reminders, and archived recordings of the chats will be in our Mystery School of the Goddess online space. See below for a few prompts to get us started and what is included in Goddess Book Chat.
***A NEW FEATURE is an Author Drop-In where a published author will join the chat for a 15 minute slot to talk about their book(s), take some questions, and offer a giveaway!
Bring your cuppa, a snack, and your favorite stack of books, and let’s have some fun!
Hope to see you there!
