Center for Fiction: “Novellas - The Perfect Bite of Literature” with Donna Raskin
PLEASE NOTE: The first meeting of this reading group on September 17th will take place from 6-7:30pm. All other sessions will meet from 7-8:30pm.
Some of literature’s greatest works (The Great Gatsby, Annie John, Giovanni’s Room) are novellas, usually about 100 to 150 pages. The novella allows for deeper exploration and explanation than a short story, but tends to limit the number of characters and focus on one story line as opposed to longer novels. In this group, you will read a novella each month and explore each work’s language, story structure, plotting, and character development. You will read Passing by Nella Larsen, Revenge by Jim Harrison, Home by Toni Morrison, and Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf.
- Session I: Passing by Nella Larsen
- Session II: Revenge (Found in Legends of the Fall) by Jim Harrison
- Session III: Home by Toni Morrison
- Session IV: Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf
