    Was wondering if we should pick specific stories to concentrate on or if we just want to have a free-flow discussion. Any ideas?

      Kris, great question - please be sure to "bring" it with you. I'll try to find some examples of my own.

    I look forward to it. I picked up a copy of the book at Powell's this morning but I remember she published many of them in the New Yorker. She is a lovely writer

    Alice Munro is retiring. Good article about her:

    I will definitely be there since I suggested the book of short stories.

    It is also available on Kindle for $14, if that helps.

    I bought Banks used online (local bookstore didn't have it), and it took over two weeks. Not the best plan if you're going to discuss it in four weeks.

    Group,
    After posting the book above, realized that it's only in hardcover at the moment - does that represent a hardship to anyone? Just wanted to make sure everyone was aware.
