Every fortnight from next Sunday, we’ll have an international musician presenting a book for discussion.
Here’s an introduction by our book club curator, Anthea Kreston:
Please join us on an exciting new adventure. One that will connect the broad and diverse Slipped Disc audience to great literature as well as give us a chance to engage with leading musicians of our time. The Fortnightly Music Book Club will have a rotating, international group of hosts, with Slipped Disc’s very own diarist Anthea Kreston guiding and serving as director.
Our first joint foray will be lead by Eugene Drucker, violinist in the Emerson Quartet. Delve into “The Savior”, his critically acclaimed, magnetic novel. The Los Angeles Times says “[A] meditation on the simultaneous indispensability and limitations of art as a transformative human experience…disturbingly provocative”.
Every other Sunday, look for a posting about the Fortnightly Music Book Club. We will hear from Mr. Drucker and have the opportunity to submit questions and propose book titles through a dedicated email address. The host will then answer reader questions.
A unique opportunity for the passionate and inquisitive readers of Slipped Disc to come together, and to be able to hear directly from major musical voices of our time. Join us.
And feel free to bombard Anthea with suggestions.
