“Just Another Magic Monday” is a book group that seeks to discuss magical realist literature and the interplay of magic with the mundane particular to the genre. We will also discuss the power of using otherworldly elements in an otherwise grounded world and how such techniques might more accurately describe truths not always represented in the rational mind. With a focus on Latin American literature, there will be an ongoing dialogue regarding any other significant works outside the region.
Amanda is a lifelong fan of "the novel" and seeks to explore the medium with others who might be interested in delving into this incredible subgenre. With a background in philosophy and translation, she would like to discuss the importance of metaphysical aspects in storytelling and language. These discussions seek to be as inclusive as possible so feel free to come and share any opinions or suggestions you may have regarding them.
