We shall read, discuss and enjoy short stories by Alice Munro, the foremost living writer of classic short fiction and winner of the 2013 Nobel Prize for literature, and a short novel by local author, Laura Pritchett. Each week, we shall read three selections. One participant will lead a 30-35 minute review, critique and discussion of each selection that all of the class will have read. The discussion leader’s main role will be to stimulate and lead discussion by the class. “We learn from each other.” The final class will be a summary “capstone” discussion of what we have learned and a course evaluation.
