Looking for a different kind of book club experience? Combine the intellectual with the summertime mood with Dr. Michael Conforti of the Assisi Institute.

Headquartered in Brattleboro, Vermont, this Jungian Institute offers teleseminars throughout the year at reasonable fees, and archives them for listening again at leisure.

This summer the archetypal patterns of long-enduring authors are up for discussion with leading experts in psychological dissection. The selections are Agatha Christie (4:50 from Paddington), Homer (the Odyssey), Herman Melville (Moby Dick), Janet Evanovich (Fearless Fourteen), and the film, “Moonstruck.”

The series is priced at $79 for the 5-week series on Monday evenings from 8 to 9, beginning July 14. Go to or email for more information on their seminars at

Got an extra beach chair for me while you listen to these? Consider this an RSVP! Just let me know where and when.
