Are you an avid reader and enjoy American literature? Then join us and let’s read together! In each of our monthly sessions, we focus on a particular book, novel, short story or collection of poems. We critically examine our previously announced reading and discuss it in detail.
This time we are going to discuss The Stone Diaries by Carol Shields. We are celebrating 25 years of the DAZ with our discussion of this book, which won the 1995 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction. Structured as a fictional autobiography, it tells the life story of an ordinary woman, complete with fictional family photographs. The New York Times reviewer said, „The Stone Diaries reminds us again why literature matters.“
