Each week we choose one short story we love to share and discuss online. This week it's a story by Alice Munro. For ages 17+.

The (now online) book club for readers who don't always have time to read. Have you wanted to be part of a book club but don't always have the time or patience to finish a whole book? Hesitant to commit to a new author you’re not sure you’ll like? The Short Story Club is the club for you. Commitment is low, enjoyment is high, and you’re sure to discover some new authors and styles to explore.

How it works

Join our club…

Every fortnight we’ll let you know how to access a short story online so that you can read along with us. Read the story and then let us know what you think by joining one of our Wednesday evening video chats (register to receive a meeting invitation from us on the day). Don’t feel like chatting? Listen to our podcast on Soundcloud or in your podcasts app where we’ll discuss some stories along with other things we've been reading.

Wednesday 15th July

Alice Munro (b. 1931) is a Canadian writer who focuses almost exclusively on short stories. She has received numerous literary awards, including the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature and the 2009 Man Booker Prize.

In The Bear Came Over the Mountain (originally published in the December 27, 1999, edition of The New Yorker), Grant and Fiona have been married for forty-five years. When Fiona shows signs of deteriorating memory, they realise she needs to live in a nursing home. During her first 30 days there—during which Grant is not permitted to visit—Fiona seems to forget her marriage to Grant and develops a strong attachment to a resident named Aubrey . . .  This story can be accessed on The New Yorker's website or in the collection Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage.

Email contact will be made prior to event start with event details.
