August Discussion: "The Pen/O. Henry Prize Stories 2012"


In August, we're reading our first  collection of short stories: "The Pen/O. Henry Prize Stories: The best stories of the year 2012" edited by Laura Furman. It contains the best short
stories published in magazines during 2011.

Finally, to whet the ole whistle, here's a
book description from Amazon.com:

The PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories 2012 gathers twenty of the best short stories of the year, selected from thousands published in literary magazines. These remarkable stories explore the boundaries of the imagination in settings as various as an army training camp in China, the salt mines of Detroit, a divided Balkan town, and the eye of a hurricane. Also included are essays from the eminent jurors on their favorite stories, observations from the winners on what inspired them, and an extensive resource list of magazines.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
