Best American Short Stories

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Short stories are often 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 study group each week, we look closely at characterizations, plot, and themes. Our weekly discussions explore recent works by novice as well as established authors. Group members will have the opportunity to lead a discussion for a story of their choice. Our texts are The Best Short Stories 2022: The O. Henry Prize Winners, Valeria Luiselli, Editor (Anchor Books, 2022) and The Best American Short Stories 2023, Min Jin Lee, Editor (Mariner Books, 2023). From time to time, we read the works of guest authors, who then join us to add their insights. If you enjoy reading fiction and are interested in exploring the power of the short story, this study group is for you.
