Welcome to the first meeting of the In Pursuit of Pretty Things Book Club! For the past couple weeks, we've all been reading or thinking about Kathryn Stockett's bestselling novel, The Help.
So, here's how this is going to work. In the comments below, you'll see that I've started the discussion with some questions. Please read through the comments to familiarize yourself with the questions, and reply to the questions directly, by clicking on the "reply" buttons, rather than starting a whole new comment/discussion thread. If you have a new question to ask, that hasn't been covered in the preset questions, then feel free to add the question as a brand new comment. I'll leave the comments open for those of you who need more time to finish reading the book, but still want to contribute to the discussion. And of course, please exercise courtesy at all times.
So, to recap:
- Discussion questions are listed in the comments below.
- Please review all comments, to familiarize yourself with the lead questions and any replies.
- Reply to questions or responses to questions directly, by clicking on appropriate "reply" buttons
- If you have a new question to ask, that hasn't been asked in earlier questions, add the question as a brand new comment.
That's it! Let the discussion begin!
*Discussion questions taken in large part from O Magazine.
