Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Coming up this week

This week the Foxes are puzzling over endings, orgasms and secrets, as well as looking at some very serious issues, sometimes all at the same time. So it’s going to be a rollercoaster and thought-provoking ride in the week leading up to Halloween.

Monday: To get in the mood for Hallowe’en, Jackie looks at Shirley Jackson’s scary short story, The Lottery.

Tuesday: Anne doubts the existence of a happy ending in Elise Valmorbida’s The Book of Happy Endings.

Wednesday: Jane Prowse rejoins us to talk frankly about bringing Jane Juska’s A Round-Heeled Woman to the stage, orgasms and Sharon Gless – not necessarily in that order.

Thursday: Cargo Publishing’s MD talks about tolerance (and intolerance) in relation to mental health issues in the arts.

Friday: Nikki wrestles with Sebastian Barry’s The Secret Scripture.

Saturday: Rumour has it that Eve will be here and will discuss something both surprising and fabulous.

The very lovely picture of Pondering woman is by Mckenna71 and is taken from the free stock photo site Stock.XCHNG, where you can find more of Mckenna71’s work.

    Thanks for the link to see more of this artist’s work. They have a nice sense of design & good use of bold colors.
    It’s certainly going to be an intriguing week on VL.

    I love that expression of hard thought. Contrasts nicely with the polka dot hair band! 😉
