Hi Book Explorers:
Author Samuel Shem very conveniently divided his book into three parts and we shall do the same with our discussion. Here's how it will work:
Week of June 2: Part 1
Week of June 9: Part 2
Week of June 16: Part 3
Week of June 22: Author Samuel Shem joins the conversation
A word about spoilers: Use common sense and avoid giving away parts of the book that are not yet open to discussion. For instance, when we're talking about Part 1 of The Spirit of the Place avoid discussing events, developments and characters that don't occur or show up until later in Parts 2 and 3. If you absolutely positively cannot avoid alluding to something from a later chapter, you MUST preface your comments with the header SPOILER ALERT in the subject line of your post. But resist the urge, please!
