Stories affirm who we are, they connect us to others, and they make shape and meaning of our lives. Join us as we read five books that richly examine the roles and forms of storytelling. We begin with the Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, beautifully translated and edited by Colin Wilcockson. We continue with My Name is Lucy Barton, Elizabeth Strout’s novel of stories we tell and stories we hide. Next is Northanger Abbey, Jane Austen’s novel about romance novels and romantic life. We follow with Graeme Macrae Burnet’s His Bloody Project, a thriller masquerading as a tale of true crime. We end with Morningstar: Growing Up with Books, Ann Hood’s memoir about reading as self-discovery.
