If you are a short story reader you won’t want to miss our program The Short of It, on Tuesday, September 3 at 7:00pm. Enjoy a compelling discussion and engage with other literature lovers! Join retired high school teacher Ron Crowley-Koch for a discussion revolving around three short stories. Two are linked below. “Interpreter of Maladies”, the title story of a Pulitzer Prize-winning collection by Jhumpa Lahiri, is not available online, but we are holding copies of the book for checkout on the second floor of the library at the Fiction/AV/Teen Services desk. Please read the stories twice to glean their true beauty.
“In the Penal Colony” by Franz Kafka
“Barn Burning” by William Faulkner
“Interpreter of Maladies” by Jhumpa Lahiri
