Know Death--Death in Short Story

Saturday, October 21, 2017, 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Explore how authors have used death to shape the American short story.

Annemarie Hamlin explores how authors have used death to shape the American short story. Participants are encouraged to read the designated texts ahead of time and should anticipate a vigorous conversation. Readings: Kate Chopin, "The Story of an Hour"; Raymond Carver, "A Small, Good Thing"; Maxine Hong Kingston, "No Name Woman."

Writers in all genres have explored the anticipation and experience of death—their own and the deaths of others. This series of discussions asks participants to examine how playwrights, poets, and short story writers have presented the many questions that lead to and follow the transition from life to death.
