Course Description

FROM THE TREE: LEGACIES (BOOK DISCUSSION)

Taught by: Miriam Camitta

Every other Tuesday, Online via Zoom 

Join us as we explore the theme of legacy—what’s given, what’s left, what’s lost and what’s won—as described in notable novels by five renowned authors. We begin with Ta-Nehisi Coates’ luminous story of love and struggle in the era of slavery in “The Water Dancer.” We continue with Louise Erdrich’s rich saga of Native American agency,” The Night Watchman,” based on her father’s tribal advocacy. Next, we read Booker Prize winner Anne Enright’s “The Actress,” a daughter’s story of loyalty in her famous mother’s decline into madness. We continue with Catherine Schine’s satirical and poignant family saga, “The Three Weissmans of Westport.” We end with Rebecca Makkai’s celebrated story of AIDS in the fraught era of the eighties, “The Great Believers.”
