True Love Comes to Those Who Wait


EsquivelHurston

Laura Esquivel and Zora Neale Hurston created marvelous stories about women whose lives are enriched by the love they share with their soulmates.Does Esquivel’s protagonist Tita believe in true love? I’d say she does. Even though her mother tries to keep Tita and Pedro apart, Tita burns with love for Pedro her whole life long. What about Hurston’s central character Janie? She does too, but she kisses a few frogs before she ultimately finds her prince. Join me for a lively discussion of Like Water for Chocolate and Their Eyes Were Watching God, the former set in northern Mexico in the early 20th century, the latter unfolding in the same time frame in Florida. What better way to escape the early darkness and dreariness of winter than by spending time with pear-tree love and recipes for passion?  

Instructor Michelle Miller, a retired English teacher, has just finished teaching her first class for CSC on two novels by Ernest Hemingway. She relished the quality of the exchange from its participants but is ready to leave the battlefield of World War I andits aftermath to investigate the battle of the sexes. A resident of 

Owls Head, Michelle spends a lot of time reading good literature, swimming at the Rockport YMCA, and gardening during the growing season.
