The next session will be on February 3rd, 2010, 3-5 pm. The text will be chapter 1 of C.S. Lewis‘ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the first in the “Narnia” series.
I will provide copies of chapters 2 and 3 for the following session (February 24th), but after that you will be expected to obtain your own copies of the book. (My copy cost just 840 yen from Amazon Japan; I recommend you buy second-hand from Amazon Japan: they are good quality and often much cheaper.)
In the first session, we will read the text together and discuss it, as we have done in previous sessions. However, in future sessions, I would like to spend less time reading the text, and instead discussing certain questions or themes. In order to discuss these themes or questions, you will need to do some extra reading. This will of course be optional, and perhaps we can find a way to share the work.
The themes and questions: some I will suggest, but I expect some questions or themes will be suggested by you, the readers.
I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, Feb. 3rd.
