Next Thursday, January 9th, the Short Story Group will discuss two great American writers: O. Henry and Truman Capote.
O. Henry published most of his short stories at the beginning of the nineteenth century. His main inspiration were the ordinary people he watched in New York City hotels and streets. The focus of the discussion will be The Gift of The Magi. Still, others of his short stories such as The Cop and the Anthem, The Last Leaf, and The Furnished Room are classics of American Literature.
Truman Capote was mostly known by his novels: In Cold Blood and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. But, he also wrote three short stories in the fifties: Miriam, the outstanding Shut a Final Door, and the short story that will be discussed at the meeting, A Christmas Memory, .
All are welcome to join the discussions. The meeting will start at 3:00 p.m. at the Saint Michaels Library.
