Take Action On This Event

About the Event

We will begin the new year with great short stories, poems, and excerpts from longer literary masterpieces. We will pay attention to structure, characterization, imagery, and themes therein, and we’ll discuss what these works evoke in our own lived experiences, our memories, and our dreams. Some of the writers we’ll encounter are Murikami, Collins, Morrison, Berry, Stafford, Ford, Baldwin, Shaw, Joyce, and Kunitz. We will have a small party during the final class session. Please bring something to share that day. Some of my essays, poems, and favorite quotations are on my website: www.donforan.webs.com. These may help your exploration of stories, plays, or poems we encounter. General Public/Members: $96/$80   Eight Sessions

 Your Teacher: Don Foran earned his PhD in English at the University of Southern California and a postdoctoral MA in Theology from the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley. He recently retired from 40 years of teaching literature and creative writing.
