Book Reading 11 (Short Stories)

Book Reading 11 (Short Stories) On-line
Leader: Frank Ledwith - see Group Leaders Contact Details.
Timing: Weekly, Mondays 2:00 - 3:00pm.
Location: online meetings via Zoom.
Activity: This group will meet for discussion of a short story which has been read in preparation for the meeting. We will start with the Nobel Prize Winners Alice Munro and Doris Lessing and may then move to other masters of this often under-rated literary form. I think that literature can, at its best, open our minds to the worlds of other people who may not be like us. So I invite members to join me in an open-minded exploration of the content and feel of these worlds as well as the style in which they are portrayed.
Communication is by video conference via Zoom..
