Choose Your Own Adventure!

Well, it turns out almost everyone had already finished Cloud Atlas, so we decided to pick a new book for July–and this time, we got a little creative.  We’ll be reading My Lady’s Choosing, an interactive romance novel by Kitty Curran and Larissa Zageris.

We’ll be meeting in State Hall 326 from 3-5pm on Friday, July 27th.

Also, we’re looking for a student leader who can help Dr. Kee out with meeting set-up and such from time to time, so if you are interested, email her at ckee@wayne.edu.

Plans for the Summer?

It’s summer! And Knit Lit has lots of plans for what to read when it gets hot outside.

At our May meeting, we went ahead and planned out our entire summer reading list:

  • For June, we’ll be reading the first half of David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas (basically, all the Part 1 story lines).  The meeting will be at 3pm on Friday, June 29th in State Hall 326.
  • For July, we’ll finish Cloud Atlas.  The meeting will be at 3pm on Friday, July 27th in State Hall 326.
  • For August, we’ll be reading Neil Gaiman’s Coraline The meeting will be at 3pm on Friday, August 31st in State Hall 326.

Even if you don’t manage to do the reading, we hope you’ll join us this summer for some good food and fiber arts fun!

If on a Winter’s Night…

So much excitement at our April meeting!  And so many chicken wings and french fries!

Now that things have calmed down, we are happy to announce that Knit Lit will continue to meet over the summer.  Our May meeting will be at 3pm on Friday, May 25th in State Hall 326.

We will be reading Italo Calvino’s If On a Winter’s Night a Traveler.  We’ll also probably continue discussing Borges’ “Library of Babel,” as we didn’t get a chance to finish our discussion before the building was evacuated (ahhhh, fun times!).

But even if you don’t get a chance to read, we still hope you’ll join us for some food, discussion, and fiber arts fun!

March Madness!!!!

Brownies and fiber arts and zombies, oh my!

Our March meeting will be Friday, March 30th at 3pm in State Hall 326.  This month, in honor of Women’s History Month, we’ll be reading Nnedi Okoafor‘s short story, “Spider the Artist,” which can be found here.

Even if you don’t get a chance to read the story, though, we hope you’ll join us for some fiber arts fun.

Hope to see you there!

February

Our February meeting will be Friday, February 23rd from 3-5pm in State Hall 326.

We decided to go for a love theme for the month, so our reading will be the short story “Help me find my Spaceman Lover” by Robert Owen Butler from The Paris Review (Fall 1996).  You can find the reading on Proquest via the WSU library system.

Even if you don’t manage to finish the reading, we hope you’ll stop by for some discussion and fiber arts fun!
