Fall Short Stories Series

You asked, we answered! Since our Summer Short Story Series was so popular, we decided to continue the series into the fall. Join Jim Kelleher virtually via Zoom on the following dates to discuss a new set of classic and contemporary short stories that illustrate the unique form of writing. *The November dates were rescheduled from September.* 

Jim Kelleher is a poet who teaches literature and composition at Northwestern CT Community College.
