Short Story Intergenerational Discussions

Thursday, December 3, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until Friday, December 4, 2020


Members & guests–free. Please scroll down to RSVP. The day before the discussion, registered attendees will receive a confirmation email with a link to join via Zoom.

Join the Bridging Generations Professional Board for more short story discussions! In November, the short story discussion group will be exploring the literary work of James McBride, an award-winning author, musician, and screenwriter. His wonderful debut collection, Five-Carat Soul, covers so much ground. Some stories are straightforward; some are gleefully surreal. And every one of them is brash, daring, and definitely original. All are welcome to join one or all of these lively intergenerational discussions, hosted by the Bridging Generations Professionals Board. Zoom links are sent out the day before each discussion.. (Note: while the this group meets weekly, members and guests may choose to attend some or all discussions).

Here are the stories to be discussed in November:

November 5 – “The Under Graham Railroad Box Car Set” (click here to read)
