[GatheringReaders] Virtual Discussion on The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making

Myra here.


Welcome GatheringReaders! I am excited to engage my book club participants with an online discussion about our Book of the Month this May – The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne Valente.


I only have a few questions here for you. Please feel free to just jump in and share your thoughts if you have read, or are currently reading the book, regardless of whether you’re in GatheringReaders or not. Do write your responses in the Comments Section.

  1. What part of the book are you in now?

  2. Who is your favourite character so far?

  3. Which part of September’s Fairyland would you like to visit?

That’s it! Easy-peasy right! Looking forward to reading your responses. For GatheringReaders participants, see you all tomorrow, 18 May, at the Jurong West Public Library, 11-12 nn.

If you’ve read the book and would like to be part of our discussion, please feel free to write your thoughts in the Comments section below.

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
