Classic American Short Stories Seminar

October 20, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - December 1, 2016 @ 8:00 pm

Chuck Timlin

University of New Haven faculty member Professor Chuck Timlin has brought his excellent teaching skills to the Essex Library community on topics such as Chaucer, Beowulf, Wordsworth & Frost and the poetry of Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson. Now, back again by popular demand, he turns his talents to an examination of classic American short stories.

In this series of six seminars, attendees will read and discuss a selection of great American short stories, a literary form that many great writers in America have practiced. In their stories these writers explore the evolution of America and what it means to be American. The group will read stories by Washington Irving, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ernest Hemingway, Ralph Waldo Ellison, Raymond Carver, and others. All stories can be found online so there is no textbook for this seminar. The series will run at the Essex Library for 6 Thursdays beginning October 20th from 6:30-8 p.m. There will be no meeting on Thanksgiving.

This program is free and open to all. For more information or to register, please call the Essex Library at (860) 767-1560. The Essex Library is located at 33 West Ave. in Essex.
