For this Adult Education class, we will discuss one short story every week for eight weeks total. No tests! No being singled out in class! Just the pleasure of reading great stories and discussing them closely with thoughtful adults like yourself, guided by literature teacher Charles Newman. 

We will be using 100 Years of the Best American Short Stories, edited by Lorrie Moore and Heidi Pitler, as our text. The collection was published in 2015 and includes some wonderful new stories as well as some wonderful older ones.
