Annual Meeting and Book Discussion

July 16, 2022

Each summer, the Council holds a brief annual meeting, board elections, and then the pièce de resistance: a book discussion!

The GBSF Annual Meeting will be on July 16, 2022, on Zoom, from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm (Pacific Time)

We'll start with a quick set of formalities: delivery of the Council's Annual Report, followed by annual elections of officers and the Executive Committee. Then we'll do what we like to do most: have a book discussion!

The Annual Meeting is free and open to anyone who has attended a Northern California Great Books event or discussion group during the past year.

This year's book is The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros.

"Acclaimed by critics, beloved by readers of all ages, taught everywhere from grade schools to universities across the country, and translated all over the world, this short novel is the remarkable story of Esperanza Cordero, a young Latina girl growing up in Chicago, inventing for herself who she will become. Few other books in our time have touched so many readers."

We'll be reading the paperback version of this book, ISBN-10: 9780679734772. It is the Vintage Contemporary Classic 25th Anniversary Edition. It is available at your local bookstore for $11.95.
