Best American Short Stories
7/16/2018
10:30 AM
Short stories have probably been created and shared since humans first began to sit around the fire in a cave at night. George Saunders claims short stories “are rarefied, dense meaning machines,” and Lorrie Moore says stories help us “see how other people make sense of things.” Stories may be meant to instruct, to warn, or just to entertain; some are sad and some are joyful, but all are thought-provoking. In this class, we will read significant stories and then share our various perspectives and insights, thus adding to their meaning and to our understandings of the world we live in. This class will read and discuss classic selections by David Sedaris, Children Playing before a Statue of Hercules, and contemporary work from The Best American Short Stories 2015, selected by T.C. Boyle with Heidi Pitlor. Students 60+ pay fee only. Tuition waiver applies; seniors pay fee only.
Course: LLI948 20 Hours
$80 + $125 fee = $205; Non-Md. residents add $140

Registration is through through the Montgomery College Lifelong Learning Institute.
