Dallas Institute’s Breakfast and lunch Book Group starts Feb. 12 and ends in May. Why read the good stuff? What you read isn’t as important as that you read, we often hear these days. But is just any poem or story capable of the kind of impact Eudora Welty, in her graceful memoir One Writer’s Beginnings, relates as a friend’s experience: “And I happened to discover Yeats, reading through some of the stacks in the library. I read the early and then the later poems all in the same one afternoon, standing up, by the window…. I read ‘Sailing to Byzantium,’ standing up in the stacks, read it by the light of falling snow. It seemed to me that if I could stir, if I could move to take the next step, I could go out into the poem the way I could go out into that snow.” The good–the best–writing is capable of changing one’s life forever.
