Best American Short Stories

« back to classes page
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 the study group each week, we look closely at characterizations, plot, and themes. We may not always agree, but we always learn from each other. Our weekly discussions explore works by up and coming authors, as well as established authors. Our textbooks are 100 Years of the Best American Short Stories, editors Moore and Pitlar (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2015), and The Best American Short Stories 2022, editor Greer (Mariner Books, 2022). Study group members may also share stories which are not included in the texts. From time to time, we read the works of guest authors who then join us to add some insights. All information needed will be provided on both Canvas and via email.
