"How Do You See It?": Explorations of Essays

Join Rev. Jan for a monthly gathering devoted to exploring contemporary essays taken from the recently released volume, The Best American Essays, edited by Ariel Levy.

The word “essay” has evolved toward a multi-faceted meaning: to examine, to weigh, to attempt to articulate one’s perspective, to experiment with one’s ideas, to put one’s views to the test by use of the written word. It is said that all views, and all knowledge, depends upon one’s perspective. As we read each essay on our own, we will ask, “How do I see it?” and then when we gather, we will invite one another to answer the question, “How do you see it?”

We will bring our brown bag lunches and gather on Wednesdays in Thomson Hall
from 12:15 to 1:15.
