2023 Reading Retreat

Next year's Alabama Chapter ACP Literature and Medicine Retreat will again be a Zoom meeting due to the unpredictability of the Covid-19 pandemic this winter. Make plans to join us Saturday, January 28, 2023, 8:30 a.m. Format will be much the same as last year: two morning sessions with a break in between, lunch break, then two afternoon sessions with a break in between. Professor Randy Davis will again facilitate the discussions. There is no cost to participate.

The reading selections are as follows:

1) Novel: Moby Dick, by Herman Melville (Norton Critical Edition, 2nd Edition recommended, but 1st or 3rd Editions are fine if you prefer or already own them)

2) Short stories: Ship Fever, by Andrea Barrett

3) Play: Ruined, by Lynn Nottage

4) Selected Poems 1960-1990, by Maxine Kumin. 

Randy will email a list of poems for discussion some time in November, and your suggestions for poems you would like to discuss are welcome.

Mary Altz-Smith will email instructions for joining the Zoom meeting a few days prior to the Retreat.  Mary will also host a Zoom "Social Hour" on Friday evening, January 27, at 7 p.m., similar to what we did this year. Likewise, she will email you a Zoom invitation with a link to the Zoom Social Hour a few days prior.

To register, contact Dr. Bill Boyd at 850-980-7300 or via email billwboyd@aol.com
