MSU English professor Linda Karell will lead the discussion, "Relevant, Redundant, or a Great Business Strategy? Nancy Drew in her Fifties."
Started last year by MSU's Department of English, Talking Books Salons provide an opportunity to discuss common topics of interest in a social and informal setting. They are patterned after the marathon discussions coined "salons" of the beatnik era. Faculty members bring their knowledge and relevant input to the topic and encourage participants to join the conversation with their own ideas and observations.
The salons take place at 7 p.m. the first Tuesday of every month at Borders Books. J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" series will be the subject of the next salon, scheduled for Oct. 4.
All salons are free and open to all. For more information, contact the MSU Department of English at 994-3768.
