Course Description

Love to read but tired of lengthy book club assignments?  Ms. Matthews directs your attention to the delights of short stories.  Her course asks you to read and discuss one story per class meeting.  Attention will be paid to classic literary elements like setting, character, conflict, and symbolism, honing your appreciation of how gifted writers combine them memorably in short fiction.  All the stories will come from the Oxford Book of American Short Stories.  It’s time to deepen your love of reading with Ms. Matthew and OLLI and be reminded that brevity can result in remarkable literary art.
