"To feel most beautifully alive means to be reading something beautiful, ready always to apprehend in the flow of language the sudden flash of poetry." These words of French philosopher Gaston Bachelard, many of whose works the Dallas Institute has translated and published, could stand as the ideal of our book groups. We will look for beauty this Fall in the selections below.
September 11 - Hilary Mantel, Bring Up the Bodies
October 9 - Ben Fountain, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk
November 13 - Herta Müller, The Hunger Angel
December 11 - A classic novel to be chosen by the group
