Join us in the Clark Room for stories by familiar 20th century writers, as well as less familiar writers from the 21st century. Our discussions will focus on close-reading, responses of the group, and the relationship of the texts to major literary trends, when relevant.
The stories will be emailed to you a few weeks before each meeting.
