Course Description

Join Ms. Matthews for a deep dive into Ray Bradbury’s story “There Will Come Soft Rain,” and more, from the anthology The Oxford Book of American Short Stories, 2nd Ed., edited by Joyce Carol Oates. Each week the class will focus on a different story from the anthology and the literary element it represents. The Bradbury story is the starting point, and a good one, but the rest will measure up. Whatever strikes you as interesting in a story is open for discussion: nothing is “off the table.” Don’t miss this chance to mix it up with your fellow OLLI members over good reads and lively conversation.
