SP19-29 SHORT STORIES: THE GEMS OF LITERATURE

Wednesdays: 11 am-12:20 pm
8 Sessions: Mar. 13-May 1
TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Diane Browne-Sterdt

Well-written short stories are the gems of literature— small powerhouses of compelling characters, moral imperatives, and psychological richness. They draw the reader right in and deliver a jolt, quietly or dramatically, at their conclusions. Classics and contemporary stories will be discussed. The proximity of despair and joy, the vulnerability and power of women, the search for inner freedom in men, and the mystery and beauty of ordinary lives will all be explored in our story analyses. This course, following in the tradition of the instructor’s previous Gems of Literature classes, features 16 stories that you may download from www.OLLIatRinglingCollege.org.
Silver Member: $95; Gold Member: $85.50.

Note: This course is also offered on Mondays as
