November 2019 Parent Book Club – The Master and Margarita

Posted by & filed under >GS News, >HS News, Riverdale Parent Book Club.

The Riverdale Book Club has selected a Russian Classic, The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov, for Novembers Book Club discussion. I hope to see you all at the High School Maverick room on November 1st from 9:00am-10:00am


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/117833.The_Master_and_Margarita

The first complete, annotated English Translation of Mikhail Bulgakov’s comic masterpiece.

An audacious revision of the stories of Faust and Pontius Pilate, The Master and Margarita is recognized as one of the essential classics of modern Russian literature. The novel’s vision of Soviet life in the 1930s is so ferociously accurate that it could not be published during its author’s lifetime and appeared only in a censored edition in the 1960s. Its truths are so enduring that its language has become part of the common Russian speech.

One hot spring, the devil arrives in Moscow, accompanied by a retinue that includes a beautiful naked witch and an immense talking black cat with a fondness for chess and vodka. The visitors quickly wreak havoc in a city that refuses to believe in either God or Satan. But they also bring peace to two unhappy Muscovites: one is the Master, a writer pilloried for daring to write a novel about Christ and Pontius Pilate; the other is Margarita, who loves the Master so deeply that she is willing literally to go to hell for him. What ensues is a novel of in exhaustible energy, humor, and philosophical depth, a work whose nuances emerge for the first time in Diana Burgin’s and Katherine Tiernan O’Connor’s splendid English version.

Gabriele Ross and Interrupting Hate in Schools

Please join us for an interactive discussion about the rise of hateful incidents in schools, how to prevent them and how to respond when they do take place. We will explore concepts such as implicit bias, “micro” aggressions, white privilege and the difference between intent and impact in racially charged interactions. The conversation will be framed in the context of having difficult conversations with our youth and giving them tools to be “upstanders” versus passive bystanders.


Gabriele Ross brings with her two decades of working as counselor and advocate with marginalized populations such as youth struggling with substance abuse and mental illness, students who are homeless, sexual minority youth and undocumented students in public schools in Seattle and in Vancouver, WA. For the past 5 years she has worked as Restorative Justice Trainer and Coach with educators and others for Resolutions Northwest. Gabriele has a Master’s Degree in Conflict Resolution from Portland State University. She is active in social justice organizations and worked as an advocate with victims of sexual assault and domestic violence, and as a community organizer. She came to the US initially as a volunteer for Action Reconciliation/Services for Peace, a German organization founded by survivors of the Nazi regime. She likes to be in her garden or on a dragon boat, or out running and biking. She is an avid soccer fan and volunteered for the Women’s World Cup twice as a translator.
