The Keystone Book Club leads off our 3rd Sunday adult discussion session, at 10am, this month with a look at What We See When We Read, by Peter Mendelsund, an artist who investigates how we make meaning from words on a page. In an amalgam of philosophy, psychology, literary theory and visual art, Knopf associate art director and cover designer Mendelsund inquires about the complex process of reading. “Words are effective not because of what they carry in them,” writes the author, “but for their latent potential to unlock the accumulated experience of the reader. Words ‘contain’ meanings, but, more important, words potentiate meaning….” It’s not necessary to have read the book to enjoy the conversation, particularly with this book, which is highly visual and lends itself well to spontaneous discussion!
