“The frontiers of the unsayable, and the avenues of approach to these frontiers, have been opened for me by every book I have ever read that was in any degree ambitious, earnest, or imaginative; by every good teacher I have had; by music and painting; by conversation that was in any way interesting; even conversation overheard as it passed between strangers.”
from “Imagination and Community” in WHEN I WAS A CHILD I READ BOOKS by Marilynne Robinson. Have you read this book? Then come to the Essays Book Club at Community Bookstore TONIGHT at 7:30pm.
