Don’t forget to join us on Thursday, October 13, 2011 at 7 PM (at the Leawood Pioneer Library) to discuss Breakfast with Buddha by Roland Merullo. Merullo is “the critically acclaimed author of seven books, including the Revere Beach Trilogy, three novels about growing up in a tight-knit community outside Boston, and Golfing with God, a novel about a man’s unexpected spiritual journey. He lives with his wife and two daughters in eastern Massachusetts. (From the publisher.)”
 
I ran across a few questions at http://www.litlovers.com in their reading guide for Breakfast with Buddha. Here they are:

  1. The big question, of course, is what does Otto Ringling come to learn—what are the spiritual insights he gains—and when does he begin to learn things? What’s the turning point? How is his life changed by this spiritual journey?
  2. Talk about the book’s humor.
  3. Pick out several passages which you found profound…which made you sit up and take notice…and discuss them.
  4. Do you see yourself in Otto?

 I hope to see you on Thursday!
