I was blown away by Samuel's discussion of Giovann's Room and the subsequent Q&A. It's got me yearning to revisit Paris. My first and only visit I felt like I was only briefly touching the city. Though Samuel's Webinars I have felt a need to explore Paris in more depth.
This was a very interesting conversation, covering many different subjects, including race relations in the USA. It encouraged me to re-read Giovanni's Room, and also to dive deeper into James Baldwin's biography.
Lopez-Barrantes is so fluent in his subject that his opening-hour passes swiftly. He brings much more to his work than he can possibly impart within this platform yet remains focused, structured, open and riveting throughout. The closing half-hour audience engagement provides equal expertise with warmth and a sincere interest in gleaning something new from his audience.
He does a great job...once again..clearly knows the subject well but he manages to present it in a really engaging way..
Really enjoyed these three seminars with books heard of but never read. Samuél did a wonderful job of presenting each of these complicated authors in a sympathetic but thought-provoking way.
