If you enjoy literature and would like to find a group of likeminded people to chat about books with, then this is the session for you. The course will provide an opportunity to read ten of the best short stories ever written and to discuss them in a friendly, supportive and encouraging environment. We will explore a range of stories, from contemporary work to classics, looking at how the different writers engage the reader. The focus of the sessions will be the group’s responses to the stories – the best lessons are always where we have different ideas! You don’t need to have any expertise to do the course – just a willingness to do a little reading and give your own views.
Short Stories Social
We will read and talk about ten short stories.
Ranging from Chekov to Roald Dahl, from H.G. Wells to Raymond Carver.
We will cover different periods and different countries.
This is a very social class. You will read the short stories and then discuss and debate the stories as a class with the enthusiasm and expertise of Literature teacher John.
Nothing. Just you and your reading glasses.
