This book group will focus on the short story as a literary form. We will read and discuss diverse examples of great short fiction, both classic and contemporary, with an emphasis on very close reading and in-depth analysis of the text. This group is designed for active, engaged readers who really enjoy participating in serious and stimulating discussions and who even find it fun and worthwhile to prepare for them by annotating, highlighting, and note-taking in order to deepen their understanding and appreciation, clarify ideas and questions, and generally make for a great discussion!
We’ll meet at the orange couches adjacent to the gift shop. Please note that while it is not necessary to pay admission in order to enter the cafe, I’m hoping that most of us will buy a drink or a snack as a courtesy to the Serai Cafe for accommodating our group.
