Lit Lunch starts anew in February

BY VIVIAN SHEPERIS

Literature and Lunch will resume its monthly luncheon discussions in February after having taken a brief hiatus. Lit Lunch has been meeting on the first Friday of every month since 2010. Its founder, Harris Green, was the initiator of several cultural clubs and events in Big Canoe, including the ongoing Big Canoe Writers Group.

There are many reasons for the continuing popularity of Lit Lunch. One is because the assigned selections are short and easily read ahead of time in one sitting. Most are short stories by notable authors, but occasionally poetry, essays and one-act plays are included.

Discussions are led by one of three rotating facilitators. Vivian Sheperis, Fran Holman and Mike Garvey present interesting talking points to stimulate the sharing of thoughts and points of view on the reading. The roundtable seminar is from noon to 2 p.m., in the clubhouse over lunch ordered from the Lit Lunch menu. All are welcome to take a place at the table as the conversation is always casual and friendly.

An email is sent ahead of time to those on the Lit Lunch roster, introducing the month’s literary selection with some prefatory information on it and the author. In addition, an online link to the text is provided, making it easily accessible for reading and printing.

A preview notice is printed monthly in Smoke Signals and “Inside the Gates.” To receive your personal informative email notice ahead of time, simply request to be placed on the Lit Lunch roster by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

Come join us to enjoy great reading and to share in the discussion or just to listen and absorb.
