First Coast Connect Book Club: 'A Tale For The Time Being' And Sharing Your 'Wise Words'

Penguin Books
"A Tale for the Time Being" by Ruth Ozeki

First Coast Connect Book Club blogger Stacey Goldring brought us her review of a "light" summer read (if you consider Proust light), and is asking listeners to share their wisdom for a her own book project.

Goldring suggested A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki, a novel she says deals with, "simple stuff like time, quantum physics, Zen Buddhism, teenage alienation, bullying, French maid cafes, (and) writer’s block," among other hot topics.

She also called on First Coast Connect listeners to help her create her new collaborative book project, Wise Words, Wisdom Gathered and Shared, by submitting their own words of wisdom or advice they have used as touchstones throughout life. Click here to email your words of wisdom (with a photo) to be part of the project.
