      CCW Book Discussion: Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks

      Join the Contemporary Catholic Writers Group for a discussion of  Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks Learn more about the book here!  FAQs Q: What is the Contemporary Catholic Writers Group? A: CCW is a reading series started by Catholic University English graduate students in 2015. Learn more about us on our English department webpageand listen to author talks and interviews on our podcast. All CCW events are free and open to everyone. Q: How do you choose which books to read? A: Everyone who participates in a book discussion during a given semester is invited to suggest titles for the next semester's reading list and to vote on the final selections. We often take titles from lists compiled by leading Catholic literary artists and editors (here and here, for example) and the Catholic Literary Imagination conference series (here and here), but we are always open to new ideas from a variety of people and sources.  Q: Will the author be present at this book discussion? A: No, but we will update the event page if there's ever a surprise visit. Q: Why do I need to register?  A: RSVPs help us ensure there will be enough space for everyone. We appreciate the heads up! Q: Should I bring anything besides my book? A: Feel free to bring a beverage or snack to share, but we'll be just as happy if you just bring yourself.  Q: What if I haven't finished the book before the meeting? A: Join us anyway! We enjoy serious, in-depth discussions focused on major themes, characters, and the nuts and bolts of literary craft, but we're not sticklers. Regardless of how far you are in the book, you're welcome to participate as much or as little as you're comfortable with. We recommend picking out a favorite passage or two that we can read aloud and use as jumping off points for further discussion.  Q: Where exactly is the event location and where can I park? A: Marist Annex is on the north end of campus (C7 on campus map): https://www.catholic.edu/res/docs/cuamap.pdf.) Free street parking is available on Harewood Road.
