    My heart is with the people of France who lost an incredible work of art yesterday

    1. CallistoDidNotWin


      Had tears in my eyes watching the news this morning.  But at least we can be thankful many works of art were saved.  But the loss, it is true, is beyond words.....not just a loss to the people of France, but a loss for humanity....

      Absolutely devastating. I remember visiting Notre-Dame with my parents when I was 12 whilst on a holiday in France.

    What was the last book you read?

    The last book I read was The Creative Explosion: An Inquiry into the Origins of Art and Religion by John E. Pfeiffer I found it in a marvelous used book store 3 weeks ago and felt compelled to power through it as quickly as possible as it ties together several subjects that I'm fascinated by - art, art history, anthropology, and evolution. The cave art the author describes are not just paintings on walls but includes many engravings, portable art pieces, and even sculptures that our ancestors created many thousands of years before recorded history. The art transformed dozens of cave systems in Southern France and Spain into spectacular natural cathedrals which humanity used to invent and disseminate a shared culture that brought disparate bands and tribes together into a larger and more resilient community.

    Shybi Book Club

    I've only read 1 of these completely (all 7 Harry Potter books) and parts of two others. I found this at goodreads, in their bookclub section, which looks like a great source for ideas for how to run online book clubs One idea that I like is to have two topics for each book - a "pre-read" one to discuss the book in general terms and a "spoiler" one where the actual discussions take place for people who have finished reading the book. At goodreads they can hide a section of a post inside a spoiler link - I don't think we can do that here (?) but we could work around that by clearly warning others to stay away from the entire topic if they haven't finished the book. https://www.goodreads.com/group/show_tag/bookclub I'm going to continue checking their clubs out and others online for ideas.
