Some Stories for the Shared Reading Group at Spades Park

January 10, 2014 by Reader's Connection

Ascend these stairs for a unique group reading experience. And tasty refreshments. And there’s an elevator if you want one.

Are you interested in sitting down and reading a story with a copacetic group of fellow-readers? The Shared Reading Group at the Spades Park Library has been reading novels, and on Friday, January 10th, they’ll read the last chapter of Moby Dick.

For at few weeks after that, they’ll be reading shorts stories, rather than a novel. If you’d like to give shared reading a try, without making a long-term commitment, here’s your chance.

Tenth of DecemberOn Friday, January 17th, led by their fearless facilitator Anja Petrakopoulos Saak, the group will read a George Saunders story from his collection Tenth of December

In the following weeks, Anja plans to read, not necessarily in this order:
Alice Munro: “Post and Beam”
Bernard Malamud: “The Jewbird”
Samuel Beckett: “First Love”
Frank 0’Connor: “First Confession”
Nathaniel Hawthorne: “The Gray Champion”

The Scarlet LetterFridays, from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. Anyone who wants to read aloud usually gets a turn; if you don’t want to read, that’s fine. The stories will be discussed and refreshments consumed.

After the stories are read, the group plans to move on to The Scarlet Letter.
