Lit Lunch postpones January meeting

By Michael Garvey

Due to The Clubhouse at Lake Sconti being closed the beginning of January, Lit Lunch is postponing its meeting previously announced for Jan. 4 until Feb. 1, 2019. Three very short stories by Kate Chopin will be discussed: “Desiree’s Baby” (1893), “The Story of an Hour” (1894) and “Regret” (1895).

Living in postbellum Louisiana, the three women protagonists struggle with society's demands and judgements. Desiree is a young mother of mysterious and questionable birth, Mrs. Mallard is a fair young wife with lines of repression in her face and Mamzelle Aurelie is a spinster determined to be alone, rejecting marriage and children.

Short story writer and novelist Kate Chopin (1850-1904) wrote about the women in Southern culture whose heart’s desires conflict with social convention. The 1890s was her most productive writing period, culminating in the novel “The Awakening,” condemned as scandalously immoral at the time. However, beginning in the 1960s and to the present day, this book has been recognized as a classic in American literature, a landmark work of early feminism.

All those on the Lit Lunch email roster will receive a notice with further information and attachments for printing out the stories. If you would like to be added to the list, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

All are welcome to join us Feb.1, noon until 2 p.m., downstairs at the clubhouse for a lively and interesting discussion. We will order from the Black Bear Pub menu. Please call 706-268-2420 no later than Jan. 31 to reserve your place at the table.
