I would love to have a bookclub, and I think if I could ever get one going, it would be wrapped around the theme I originally attempted - the sacramental imagination. I would like the focus to be on choosing and discussion books in which the sacramental imagination of the author is displayed. I would like to hold it in the evening, once a month with drinks and coffee and good background music. I would like it to include poetry. Ideally I might even have it start out with poetry, from a variety of writers, to give a broad understanding of the imagination at work. Rilke would be there for certain, and Camus’ The Fall, and Tolstoy’s stories from Divine and Human, as well as some kid’s stories, like the Hounds of the Morrigan, or that George McDonald story about the key. I would hope for good discussion, good reading, and good friendships.
