Books: A Glimpse of Light

Bookshelf: recommended readings Reading
The mood in war is a subject in itself; it is like a pendulum swinging from frustration to despair, from despair to anger, from anger to fear, from fear to hope, and so on in circles. But there are also moments of joy and light. Hanukkah candles are a symbol of the light that comes to dispel the darkness. Each person decides what their source of light is. For me, there are several: family, friends, and work.

Just as we light an additional candle each day to strengthen the light, so too has a new light been kindled for me—the weekly meeting of creative writing, drama, and Shakespeare.

We conduct the course together with Yam Drori from Theater in the Rough, IL. It's hard not to feel happy when you're surrounded by people who simply enjoy talking about books!

In our first meeting, we talked about genres in literature and practiced how to create a space that invites the reader into a story of a specific genre. We had a discussion about the differences between style and genre. We remembered the books we love. I'm eagerly looking forward to the next meeting, and I invite anyone who wants to join.
