Building Connections beyond Stereotypes

by Kerry Cue

One of the great joys of Posting on INSTAGRAM is coming across enthusiastic book groups with hilarious names. Boozy Book Babes is a favourite.

Here is the comment about The Sunday Story Club by the Boozy Book Babes on INSTAGRAM:

‘Beautiful cover! Would it be too ironic for our book club to read this book?’

Touché. The Sunday Story Club is like a book club without books. Whereas a book club asks ‘What do you read?’ in The Sunday Story Club we would ask ‘Why do you read?’ This last question opens up a different and deeper conversation. It is this deeper conversation that helps build connections beyond stereotypes.

Escaping the stereotype into wisdom & understanding

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.

How E M Foster’s 1909 vision of dystopia became our reality

In Foster’s 1909 novella, The Machine Stops, people communicate via glowing screens but live lonely, isolated lives. His dystopian world has become our reality. We wrote The Sunday Story Club as an antidote to screens.
