Short Story Discussions
Short Story Discussion Group
Join us for a lively discussion and analysis of one short story each month. Come to just one session or as many as you like. No need to sign up in advance. Visitors and newcomers are always welcome!
It doesn’t take long to read a short story, so you can fit this into a busy schedule. We meet in the Parlor on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 3:30 PM.
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.
