Travel back in time as we read and discuss a celebration of some of the best short stories between the 1990s and 2010. We will examine the lives of some of America's most recognized authors and the influences of the time on their writings. Before each session, participants will read two to three selections from "100 Years of the Best American Short Stories," edited by Lorrie Moore and Heidi Pitlor. Then, during each session, we will analyze and discuss how authors' choices have changed over the years and the forces that have shaped those changes; world and national events, political developments, and social movements will all be viewed through the lenses of some of our most distinguished literary voices. Together, we will uncover what it has meant to be an American through prose at the turn of the 21st century that explore aging, gender, immigration, racism, war, and more. Space is limited.
