I just posted this on the message board at http://www.meetup.com/Novel-Lovers-of-Sebastopol/messages/boards/. I wouldn’t ordinarily duplicate a message board post in an email, but I know many of you don’t follow the message board, and this might be of interest to you:

 

I love reading contemporary short stories as well as novels. I often finish reading a provocative short story and wish I could discuss it with someone. Would any of you like to join me in meeting monthly to discuss a couple of short stories?

This would not supplant or interfere with our regular meetings -- it would be a smaller, informal group meeting solely to discuss short stories. I envision a few of us buying an anthology and choosing two stories to discuss at each meeting.

If you like this, I propose an anthology such as The Granta Book of the American Short Story: Volume Two. (Amazon link here, and I saw it in Copperfield's, too.) This is a 2007 collection of 44 contemporary, American short stories, and I imagine it would keep us busy.

Post here if you like this idea, and if so, would you like a Sunday afternoon (other than the one we schedule for our novel discussion) or a different day and/or time of day?.

When I was looking at this book in Copperfield's, a staffer told me, "People aren't reading short stories anymore." Oh, dear. I hope that's not true, and if it is, I hope that doesn't mean that good writers will stop writing them. I'm ready to do my part -- you?
