What we're about

The Short Story group of the Houston Great Books Council discusses short works of fiction, usually no more than 20 to 25 pages. If stories are less than 15 pages we may discuss two works in the same meeting. We meet monthly, on the second Tuesday of each month. Everyone who likes to read short fiction is welcome to attend. Usually 6 to 10 members attend each meeting.
