In the Evening There is Feeling is DCA’s Exhibitions reading group. It takes its name from Gertrude Stein’s 1914 book Tender Buttons and focuses, in an informal and welcoming way, on feminist and queer texts from the worlds of art and literature.
Following on from the first winter reading group looking at Ursula K. Le Guin’s novel The Left Hand of Darkness, this session will introduce and discuss some of the ideas contained within Le Guin’s non-fiction work. We’ll specifically focus on selected texts from two recent collections: The Wave in the Mind: Talks and Essays on the Writer, the Reader, and the Imagination and Words Are My Matter: Writings About Life and Books.
Digital copies of selected texts will be available and sent out to all participants after booking a place.
