The short story emerged as a genre in the 19th c. almost simultaneously in the United States, Germany, France and Russia.  This winter, forget the snow outside, pull a chair up in front of a blazing fire, sip a cup of hot tea, and explore classic Russian short stories of many styles—fabulist, realistic, impressionistic, romantic, satirical—from the great Russian writers of the 19th and early 20th centuries: Pushkin, Lermontov, Gogol, Turgenev, Dostoevsky, and Tolstoy.  Then join a group of enthusiastic readers in discussing these stories chronicling “not only the particular dramas and upheavals of the Russian people, but also the tribulations and triumphs of the human spirit.” 

Choose Wednesday or Thursdays at 12:30 pm starting 1/6.
