After Hours Readers: Alumnae Book Club

The After Hours Readers is an alumnae book club that meets on a monthly basis. In our last meeting we discussed several of the stories in "The Best American Short Stories, 2019" and decided to follow-up with a fuller discussion of three of them for our next meeting:
“Pity and Shame” by Ursula K. LeGuin
“The Told Us Not to Say This” by Jean Alandy Trahan, and
“Natural Disasters” by Alexis Schaitkin
Please read the Contributors’ Notes that accompany these stories, too.

We will also read and discuss “The Grammarians” by Kathleen Schine, not a lengthy novel and perhaps more upbeat than some of the short stories.

Contact Lockey McDonald at for more information.
