READING STORIES – THE CANADIAN EXPERIENCE The short story is one of the oldest literary genres. Many Canadian authors known primarily as novelists, such as, Margaret Atwood, Thomas King, Gabriel Roy and Madeleine Thien, have delved into the short story.  What prompts them to do so?  For the story to be considered “Canadian” must the author be Canadian and do the stories have to be set in Canada? In this 18-week course we will read a variety of Canadian short stories and in addition ask the following questions: What constitutes a short story?  What can we learn about Canada from these stories?  How do diverse writings reflect Canada’s tapestry?

Please note: In the Fall 2022 Newsletter it says "18 - week course", this registration is only for the first 8 weeks. There will be another 10 week registration listedin the Winter 2023 Newsletter for the remaining sessions (another payment will be indicated).
