ClassGraphic If you enjoy reading fiction and are interested in exploring the power of the short story, this study group is for you. The beauty of this group is that at every session, each member has the opportunity to be an active participant. Short stories are carefully written gems of literature. They combine compelling characters, drama, and descriptive language, which lead to lively and thought-provoking discussions. Led by a different member of our class each week, we look closely at characterizations, plot, and themes. We may not always agree, but we always learn from each other each time we are together. Our weekly discussions explore works by up and coming authors, as well as established authors. You will have the opportunity to lead a discussion for a story of your choice. We intend to use The O. Henry Prize Stories 2020 once published (early fall). Until then, the study group coordinators will provide materials to all study group members.  From time to time, we read the works of guest authors who then join us to add some insights. Canvas used extensively.
