In relation to your article on "The Book Generation" by Dennis McLellan (View, Sept. 13), perhaps you would be interested in some readers at the other end of the age spectrum.
A group of seniors meets on Fridays at 10 a.m. at the Golden Timers, 114 E. 19th St. in Costa Mesa, and new members are welcomed. (Phone: (714) 642-2275.)
We read plays: classical or modern, serious or comic. The ability to act is not at all essential, but if you're a seventy-something woman, you may read the part of a 12-year-old boy with elan and understanding; and a sixty-something man may read that of a faithless young wife in a very nice baritone for a few pages.
The vintage of this group seems a good one. Our long life experience has enriched our comprehension of some of its mysteries and humor--if we do say so ourselves. And we're still discovering wonders.
