Lunch Book Group


Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture

Presented by Dr. J. Larry Allums

The Dallas Institute’s book groups have a long history and a long list of contemporary novels read since 1998 that is climbing steadily toward 200 titles. Some, of course, have been more memorable than others, some have made surprising impacts on us, and a small few are perhaps best forgotten. Throughout our many discussions over the years, we have learned much—about cultures and characters depicted by authors from around the world, and also about reading itself. During our sessions, we discover anew why we read and learn how to be better readers. True, reading is a solitary activity, but coming together in community is to participate in the joy of sharing ourselves in an atmosphere of civility and generosity. It’s a good place to be.
