Short Story Society

2023 Reading List

Welcome to the club! If you want to enjoy all fun, ideas, and conversation but don’t have much time, Short Story Society is the group for you! It has all the fun of a book club without the time commitment to reading a novel! We’ll discuss a short story on the second Thursday of each month. Be sure to RSVP on our events calendar. The reading list is subject to change, and we will update the date here in our blog.
