Join the celebration of some of the best short story writers of the 20th Century. Pay tribute to an all new selection of classical writers such as James Baldwin, Raymond Carver, Joyce Carol Oates and several others. The class will discuss one or two stories each week, teasing out the meanings and analyzing the unique writing styles of each author. Build your interpretation skills and feel welcome to share your ideas in a lively, interactive format. This session will use an all new reading list, and last year’s class, the “Masters of Short Story Part I,” is not a prerequisite.
REQUIRED READING: Lorrie Moore, Heidi Pitlor, Eds. 100 Years of The Best American Short Stories. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2015.
