Guided Discussion: The Great American Short Story Club-II 1979-2008   

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Do you love book groups but don’t always have the opportunity to read the book? Here’s a chance to enjoy the camaraderie, education, and fun of a book group every week without having to dedicate much time to reading the selected material. The Great American Short Story Club provides great literature by email and on paper that explores our most celebrated and interesting writers' experiences, imagination, and values—in short, manageable doses. Want to participate in the lively discussion? Terrific. Want to sit back and learn and enjoy? Be our guest. The lively conversation will delve deeply into the meaning of the week's story without sacrificing the simple pleasures of reading a good story. Handouts are provided for each story. Space is limited.
