Jack London State Historic Park has formed the Jack London Book Discussion Group which is designed by and for people who believe, as Alfred Kazin famously said, that the “greatest story Jack London ever wrote was the story he lived.”
The series continues Friday, July 18, 2 to 4 p.m., with “The Book of Jack London, Volume 1” by Charmian London. Written shortly after London’s death, Charmian, his widow, wrote these memoirs almost as a love letter to her lost “mate.”
The book group is led by two Jack London scholars, Susan Nuernberg, Ph.D. and Iris Jamahl Dunkle, Ph.D. Participants can attend individual sessions or sign up for the series. Books should be available in the museum bookshop.
The discussion group will be held in the Terrace Picnic area next to the Cottage, accessed via the Ranch parking lot. Cost, which does not include parking, is $10 for individual sessions or $45 for all five meetings. Parking fee of $10 is payable at the entrance kiosk. Call 938.5216 for questions or more information.
