The Power

Power

Join Knit Lit on Friday, January 25th from 3-5pm in State Hall 326 as we kick off the Winter semester!

For our first meeting of the new year, we’ll be reading Naomi Alderman’s 2017 book, The Power. 

But even if you don’t get a chance to read it, we hope you’ll stop by for some fiber arts fun.

Angela Carter

For the November meeting, we’ve decided short stories would be the best, and we’re inviting all of our fiber artists to read some short tales penned by Angela Carter–whatever you’d like–and we’ll discuss them at our meeting.

The meeting will be on Friday, Nov. 30th from 3-5pm in State Hall 326.

As always, you don’t have to read to join in, and we welcome all experience levels from absolute beginners to expert fiber artists.

We’ll be knitting, crocheting, and doing needle work, so come join us!

Let’s Play a Game…

Our October meeting will be Friday, Oct. 19th from 3-5pm in State Hall 326.

For this month, we’ve decided to go with another spooky YA reading.  This time, it’s Zilpha Keatley Snyder’s The Egypt Game

But even if you don’t read the book, we hope you’ll join us for some fiber arts fun.

As always, all levels of interest–from beginner to expert–are welcome, as are fiber artists of all kinds, whether you do crochet, knitting, needlepoint or something else.

The House with the Clock in its Walls

Join us in September as we read John Bellairs’ The House with the Clock in its Walls in anticipation of the film adaptation coming out later this month.

We’ll be meeting on Friday, September 21st from 3-5pm in State Hall 326.

As always, all levels of skill and any type of fiber craft is welcome at Knit Lit.

Even if you don’t read the book, we hope you’ll stop by for some good food, lively discussion, and fiber arts fun!

Time to Talk to the Other Mother…

The Fall semester is almost here and with it, Knit Lit is gearing up for an academic year full of fiber arts fun!

Our next meeting will be on Friday, August 31st and we’ll be reading Neil Gaiman’s Coraline

But even if you can’t do the reading, we hope you’ll join us from 3-5pm in State Hall 326 to knit, crochet, and talk about our plans for the coming semester.

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!
