The Martha's Vineyard Library Association is pleased to present a series Of talks by Phil Weinstein, Alexander Griswold Cummins Professor of English at Swarthmore College. Beginning with Ernest Hemingway's In Our Time -1925- and concluding with Elizabeth Strout's Olive Kittredge -2008-, this course explores a range of American short stories. We will devote a week apiece to each of four writers. Our goal is not to sample the huge output in this genre, but to delve more deeply into these writers' concerns and literary procedures and to identify the characteristic voice of each. Books may be requested from your local library. Study guide is available at the front desk.

Philip Weinstein, Island summer resident and Alexander Griswold Cummins Professor of English at Swarthmore College, will lead a class on Olive Kitteridge, Elizabeth Strout's collection of interrelated stories. This is the last in a four-part series sponsored by the MV Library Association and entitled A Century of American Short Stories -- but it's also a stand-alone program which you are welcome to attend whether or not you attended Professor Weinstein's previous classes.
