Short Story Discussions
Short Story Discussion Group
It doesn’t take long to read a short story,
so you can fit this into a busy schedule!
This year, we're reading selections from "Women & Fiction: Short Stories by and About Women," edited by Susan Cahill (available on Amazon, new and used). Most of these stories are available online, also.
We meet in the Parlor at 3:15 PM on the 2nd Wednesday of each month:
March 8: “A Wagner Matinée”, by Willa Cather
April 12: “The Secret Woman”, by Collette
May 10: “Miss Furr and Miss Skeene”, by Gertrude Stein
About the book: This book contains twenty-six short stories by the finest women writers of the twentieth century. These well-known and well-loved authors people their stories with vibrant female characters, from all over the world and all walks of life. Separately, each of these stories bears the mark of a skilled writer. Together, they celebrate woman in her many roles. Superbly written, and at once poignant and ironic, these insightful stories capture the essence of being a woman—in all its similarity, and all its diversity.
Movie Reviews: For those who would like to stay on after our story discusion, we'll take a little extra time to share any recommendations we may have for movies we have recently seen.
