April 24-Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

At our March 27th meeting we discussed the book, Suspect by Robert Crais.  Many members like the mystery genre and felt this was a good selection for the group.  Refreshments included: Sticky garlic noodles in wonton cups (wonton wrappers baked in muffin cups for 10 mins at 375) and Churro creme brulee bars. Several in the group were interested in reading the second Scott & Maggie mystery, Promise.

Our next meeting with be April 24th at 3pm in the Turner Room.  We will be reading Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert.  Copies of the book are available at the LME Library desk.  Discussion sheets are available for pickup or can be found online.  

Summary: "Readers of all ages and walks of life have drawn inspiration and empowerment from Elizabeth Gilbert's books for years. Now this beloved author digs deep into her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. With profound empathy and radiant generosity, she offers potent insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration. She asks us to embrace our curiosity and let go of needless suffering. She shows us how to tackle what we most love, and how to face down what we most fear. She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives. Balancing between soulful spirituality and cheerful pragmatism, Gilbert encourages us to uncover the "strange jewels" that are hidden within each of us. Whether we are looking to write a book, make art, find new ways to address challenges in our work, embark on a dream long deferred, or simply infuse our everyday lives with more mindfulness and passion, Big Magic cracks open a world of wonder and joy."
