A Resurrection Beyond: Enchantment & Possession (Mark 5 & 9 and The Shining)
Readings from “Blood Sport,” Book One of Carrie, will prompt small-group discussions of our personal histories “possessing” us. In this context we will address the vulgarities of scripture and King’s stories, including their misogyny, racism, and anti-LGBTQIA+ rhetoric. We will ask: Is Carrie White a villain or a victim? Do these writings reflect the judgments of their time, or do they actively perpetuate their characters’ bigotries? How are we responsible for the circumstances and ideas that we do not choose, but that choose us?
