Program Description

Event Details

3rd Thursday of the month: April 20th, May 18th, June 15th 

Join a host of literary fans along with the facilitation of Andrea Markowitz; a voracious reader and writer of fiction and nonfiction. She earned degrees in English, music and psychology, and explored a variety of careers in education and writing. After “retiring” she discovered her true calling is to write plays and musicals. Her dedication to writing for the stage was acknowledged recently with an ariZoni Award for best new script for “Fair Game,” a musical satire based on a true story about fake news! 

April 20: A Literary Work or Film You Return to Again & Again- Is there a book, poem or film that you’ve felt compelled to read or watch more than once? Perhaps many times? What makes it special to you? What keeps pulling you back? We’ll respond to these questions and more! 

May 18: A Literary Work or Film That Has a Number in the Title- Pick a number, any number, from big-digit literary works and films like “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” to the single “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” and tell us all about it. 

June 15: Death, Dying (& Transformation)- Good grief! The topic of death and dying can be uplifting and transformative as well as tragic. Choose a literary work or film in which death, dying and/or transformation is a major theme.
