116 - The Study of American Short Stories by Distinguished Authors
June 5 - June 9
1:30 PM - 2:45 PM
Cost - $40.00
Adventure into the world of literature told by some of the best contemporary short story writers. A short story is quality fiction, but it is short, unlike a novel, and is absorbed in one sitting. It’s always been America’s own typical form of literary expression. We’ll study the “best” from the book, "The Norton Anthology of Short Fiction"., SHORTER SEVENTH EDITION, which is available on Amazon. Each of us will bring our unique experiences & our intellectual interpretation of the stories, resulting in some lively and thoughtful discussion. Specific stories to be studied will be confirmed later.
