You’re invited! This marks the first week of an online bookclub, mainly homeschooling moms, who are reading through The Mind of the Maker by Dorothy Sayers. Don’t worry about feeling like you are late to the party. Thanks to the wonders of amazon.com, you can be caught up in no time. (Perhaps you even have a long lost copy hidden away somewhere?)
Dorothy Sayers is well known as a mystery writer, Christian, friend of Lewis and Tolkien, and cultural critic. In this book she brings her sparkling wit and incisive intellect to bear on the subject of creativity. But it’s more than just “how do we paint a picture?”, it’s “what does it mean to be a creator?” and “what does the Trinity have to do with this?” .
How do book clubs like this work? We’re a casual bunch, friendly, and welcoming. I imagine most of the conversation will take place over at the home, er…website, of our fearless leader Cindy. www.ordo-amoris.com You can find the reading schedule here. As you read, feel free to add your comment to the discussion. (Any comments posted here will be addressed as well.)
I am armed with my trusty highlighters and am diving into the first chapter!
