The Canterbury Tales Book Club Project 2012

I haven't had this much fun in ages. When the Williamstown Literary Festival agreed to support The Canterbury Tales Book Club Project - they unleashed a monster!
Beginning with little to no knowledge of the Tales or Chaucer, we have learned much. I now know the source of the joke 'Three men walked into the bar ...', Catherine knows how to make a wimple and Danny has taught us that there is a product called Nicotine Tooth Enamel - to make your teeth look rotten.
Oh .. we have also learned lots about Middle English, Chaucer and the Tales. Enjoy the pic of Danny O'Connell and Catherine Ryan in my garden - they make an interesting couple I think. They were dressed up for a publicity shot. Definitely front page material.
