Fathers, Fiction & Children: The Male Gaze

In the last 50 years, writers have focused on characterization, theme and family dynamics, but few have turned their full gaze on men as fathers. In fact, in the spring of 2023 in a previous class, one class member lamented this absence. This class will illuminate some remarkable exceptions: per Petterson’s novel, “Out Stealing Horses,” and Norman Maclean’s “A River Runs Through It” and other stories. Join us for three lively discussions of the novel, and one final session on Maclean’s novella. These books are available in inexpensive paperbacks, in the Milwaukee Public Library, and at Boswell’s. The novel is also available in Kindle.

Dates and locations to be announced.
