Sometimes when we tell our stories we travel down the same well-worn tracks. The questions in The Sunday Story Club are carefully crafted to sidestep the prepared narratives you use to explain your life experiences to yourself and others. In this way, you learn about your self.
My co-author, Doris Brett, and I launched The Sunday Story Club at Readings Book Store in Hawthorn, Melbourne, recently. The launch was so successful we almost developed hand cramps from signing books.
Doris’s talk addresses the importance of face-to-face communication, explains why telling our stories out loud can help us understand ourselves and shows how having deeper conversations can lead to insight into our life experiences and, ultimately, to wisdom.
Thousands of books are published each month so getting your book reviewed at all is worthy of popping the champagne cork.
I read the review holding my breath. Then I had to read it again because I was too terrified for the words to register.
Hallelujah! The short review (below) by Fiona Capp was terrific. I could breathe again.
The official book launch of The Sunday Story Club: The Book Club without books @ Readings Hawthorn. Great enthusiastic crowd. That’s me in the Hi-Vis shirt. Ha!
