Honors Reads @ Break

3 Best American Short Stories
Tuesday, January 12, 2021
5:00-6:00 PM
Virtual
During this long break, why not get caught up on some light reading (and, consequently, add to your Honors engagement work, if it helps)?

We'll be enjoying Doerr's annually-published anthology, The Best American Short Stories (2019), by reading the first three:

The Era, by Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah;
Natural Light, by Kathleen Alcott;
The Great Interruption: The Story of a Famous Story of Old Port William and How It Ceased to be Told (1935-1978), by Wendell Berry.

These editions are highly anticipated from year to year and just may become a part of your new year's tradition. You'll be able to post comment @lsahonors IG and join in two discussions:

1/5 One hour discussion of first two short stories (Adjei-Brenyah & Alcott).
1/12 Half-hour discussion of third story (Wendell).

To participate, bring a favorite quote from each (and why), as well as one discussion question or summary of the author's impact.

All interested Honors students are welcome! For SHA points, attendance will be taken at both discussions; reading all three short stories will count as one (1) Honors Reads book. Three (3) books are required in the first two years to earn an SHA engagement point.

Note: The ebook is available at no cost on MLibrary; you can download a PDF or read online.
