January 10, 2014 by Reader's Connection
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.
On 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”
After the stories are read, the group plans to move on to The Scarlet Letter.
