    I wish those polls were not under "more" I rarely think to look there.

      It's how Meetup is set up. You could always drop them a note and give feedback.

    I won't be there, going to a book party for Peter Carlson's new book, Albert and Junius's adventures in the Civil War. I did read a book of short stories by Ron Resh and loved them. I loved the very short ones, it is so amazing to get so much story in so few pages. I have also started two other books of short stories. One starts with almost a novella and I am liking that less. When is the July meeting? will the 4th come into play with that scheduling?

    • Betsy

      There is a poll out for everyone to decide what works for the next meetup. It will not conflict with July 4.

    I haven't started a short story collection yet. Reading JK Rowling's 1st book for adults, "Casual Vacancy."

      Jill, have you finished reading yet? Everyone I have talked to about this book has started and not finished it (including myself).

      1 · May 24, 2013

    • Jill V.

      Yes, I also put aside Casual Vacancy. I hope to get back to it, because it is really well-written, but it is So Bleak and all the characters are hard to like. For work I started reading a collection of plays by Brazilian playwright, Nelson Rodrigues. Figured I could call this my short story collection!

    I read some other things first, but have now settled on Isak Dinesen's Gothic Tales, a favorite of my late mother's.

    I also read All that is Gold can be lost by Ron Resh. Excellent book, just lyrical. And the stories range from very short to more average length.

    I'm reading Tenth of December: Stories by George Saunders.

    I might not make it to meetings until July, but I can be an online group member. The short story collection I plan on reading is Nothing Right by Antonya Nelson. No idea what to expect, but I'll keep you posted!

      Fantastic, Sarah, look forward to hearing about it!

    Reading Eight Girls Taking Pictures, by Whitney Otto. It is billed as a novel, but it is 8 separate stories of girls taking pictures. So far, I have read 3, it might tie together at the end and become a novel.... will keep you posted. Enjoying it in the meantime.
