"Imagine that you could share coffee with a collection of history's greatest women...
This book convenes such a club."
"Each club meeting centers around a particular topic of interest,
as members engage in dialogue across time and space. You are invited to listen in."
"[I]magine that you, too, are a participant in the dialogue."
"[P]ull up a chair, make yourself comfortable; and, welcome to the club!"
So how do I use this book in such a way that it is, for me at least, a virtual club, and not just another collection of quotations?
"Meetings" are held on the third Tuesday of each month,
at 11:00 AM, with coffee, of course.
I sit on the opposite end of the couch from where I normally sit.
I imagine myself responding to at least some of the quotes in the book.
So far, I'm enjoying this "club" very much.
