Le damos un descanso a Joyce (con la intención de retomar los cuentos dentro de unos meses) y como nos resistimos a dejar atrás el verano, os proponemos "Dandelion Wine" de Ray Bradbury como texto a trabajar en nuestro próximo workshop.

"Hold summer in your hand, pour summer in a glass, a tiny glass, of course, the smallest tingling sip for children; change the season in your veins by raising glass to lip and tilting summer in."

Class: Tuesdays 19.30hs - 21.00hs
Where: Lavapiés
Teacher: Clayton Louden
Price: 100€ (6h)

This article by Johann Hari talks about Ulin's book and points out a very interesting reflection on reading "physical books". The link to the whole article in The Independent is at the bottom.

"In his gorgeous little book The Lost Art of Reading – Why Books Matter in a Distracted Time, the critic David Ulin admits to a strange feeling. All his life, he had taken reading as for granted as eating – but then, a few years ago, he became aware, in an apartment full of books, that I could no longer find within myself the quiet necessary to read". He would sit down to do it at night, as he always had, and read a few paragraphs, then find his mind was wandering, imploring him to check his email, or Twitter, or Facebook. "What I'm struggling with," he writes, "is the encroachment of the buzz, the sense that there's something out there that merits my attention."

I think most of us have this sense today, if we are honest. If you read a book with your laptop thrumming on the other side of the room, it can be like trying to read in the middle of a party, where everyone is shouting to each other. To read, you need to slow down. You need mental silence except for the words. That's getting harder to find."
