A Tale for the Time Being

Missed the discussion/have more to say about A Tale for the Time Being? Discuss it here in the comments. Here’s a question to start off:

Haruki #1 cites a Zen master for the idea that “a single moment is all we need to establish our human will and attain truth” (324). What kind of enlightenment is Ozeki calling for in A Tale for the Time Being? Is it really available to everyone? Would you try to achieve it if you could? Why or why not?


December and January’s Books

Hi everyone,

Hope you had a great meeting in November and are keeping warm! As we had some extra votes after the poll had closed this month, we have another tie situation. Therefore we will be discussing The Orchid Thief on December 19th and A Tale for the Time Being in January. I will put holds on for everyone. If you didn’t attend the meeting in November but would like me to put a hold on for you,  please comment on this post or email me at emma@topshamlibrary.org.

See you in December!
