What kind of advice do you give to others?

Our first conversation will be about the short story “Girl” by Jamaica Kincaid. “Girl” consists of a single sentence of advice a mother imparts to her daughter, only twice interrupted by the girl to ask a question or defend herself. She intends the advice to both help her daughter and scold her at the same time.

The event is free, but registration is required.

Program Description

At a time when many of us are still physically separated, Delaware Humanities will host more "Distant Discussions" to bring us together. We will use videos, shorts stories, poems, and more to bridge the gap between us, when a sense of community and being united is especially important. We will "meet" once a month via Zoom to have a short, 30 minute conversation.  Three events will be co-hosted by the Department of Health and Social Services Library and have a focus on "Literature and Medicine". Check back here for information on the  monthly topic and how to register. 2021 Dates: Thursday, April 22 at 5 PM Thursday, May 27 at noon - co-hosted by the Department of Health and Social Services Library Thursday, June 24 at 5 PM Thursday, July 22 at noon - co-hosted by the Department of Health and Social Services Library Thursday, August 26 at 5 PM Thursday, September 23 at noon - co-hosted by the Department of Health and Social Services Library
