Led by Matt Jaeger, author and library assistant.
All are welcome to join us for the next meeting of Shorts & Stouts which will focus on a pair of stories by Jhumpa Lahiri: "A Temporary Matter" and "Interpreter of Maladies".
Themes explored by these stories include: marriage, assimilation, honesty, language barriers, and lousy Americans.
Shorts & Stouts is a short story discussion group sponsored by the McCracken County Public Library and held at Dry Ground Brewing Company on the second Monday of each month at 7pm. Discussions are open to the public. No "stout" purchase is required.
