Next TU Book Club meeting to focus on Chaucer’s ‘The Wife of Bath’

During the next meeting of the Thomas University Book Club on Monday, Oct. 21, attendees will discuss Geoffrey Chaucer’s “The Wife of Bath,” which is part of the “Canterbury Tales.”

“The Wife of Bath” is considered to be among the best-known of Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales.” Written during the 14th century, the story gives insight into the roles of women in the late Middle Ages and focuses on one of the most developed characters in the “Canterbury Tales.”

Leading the discussion will be Dr. Jason Dunn, an Associate Professor of English at Thomas University. Dunn holds a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of South Florida, a master’s degree in English from San Diego State University, and a Ph.D. in English from the University of California-Davis. Before joining TU, he was an Assistant Professor, Communications and Honors Faculty, at the College of Central Florida; an Associate Instructor and then Lecturer in the English Department and University Writing Program at the University of California-Davis; and an English Instructor in the English Department and the Department of Rhetoric and Writing Studies at San Diego State University.

The Book Club meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Campus Center Classroom on TU’s Forbes Campus. The meeting is free and open to the public. For more information, call 229-227-6964 or email actu@thomasu.edu.
