Big Books: Chekhov Short Stories

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Hammond Room

Anton Chekhov’s short stories depict everyday life with all its simplicity and complexity. “There are no easy answers to be found in Chekhov's writing,” said Michael Enright, in a CBC special, “Chekhov for the 21st Century.” “He shows us people as they are, not as we would like them to be. And the world as it is, not as it should be.” 

Our three-week summer session will allow us to dive into some of Chekhov’s best stories. Leading the discussion will be Barbara Joyce, who has been teaching English at New Trier High School for 15 years. She holds master’s degrees in religious studies and in writing, making her acutely impressed with Chekhov’s ability to infuse the mundane with meaning.

The Big Books discussion series is sponsored by the Friends of the Glencoe Public Library. Registration is required and space is limited. Glencoe residents will get priority if the class fills up. Registration opens June 1; visit the library’s website or call to register. The class will meet July 11, 18 and 25, 7:00-8:30 pm. Please sign up only if you can attend all three sessions.
