This eight-week course is an exciting mix of classic literary texts: stories and poems which will lead to rich discussions of characterization, structure, and themes which emerge from our reading of texts by diverse writers like Welty, Cheever, Chabon, Perotta, Houseman, Hopkins, Thomas, Faulkner, Frost, O’Connor, Carver, de Maupassant, London, O’Connor et al. During the last class session we’ll share wine and cheese and juice and crackers, whatever makes for an appropriate party to celebrate our accomplishments and friendship this quarter. Some of the authors featured this quarter are discussed in my essays, poems, and quotations on www.donforan.webs.com General Public/Members: $88/$82 For more info or to register, call 360.586.6181 or stop by the Olympia or Lacey Senior Center.
