After the sellout success of our first short story club, we are back this month with another brilliant short story. Come along and enjoy a glass of wine as we read to you, then join in the discussion! Come celebrate the joy of the short story. This month we are reading George Saunders’ story ‘Victory Lap’ which can be found in his short story collection ‘Tenth of December’. We’ll be selling the collection at ten percent off.
Join us for the first in a new regular fixture in our events programme that we are really excited about at Golden Hare Books! Whether you are a short story aficionado already, have always wanted to read more stories or just like being read to, this club is for you!
'Although actually she loved Ms. C. So strict! Also loved the other girls in class. And the girls from school. Loved them. Everyone was so nice. Plus the boys at her school. Plus the teachers at her school. All of them were doing their best. Actually, she loved her whole town. That adorable grocer, spraying his lettuce! Pastor Carol, with her large comfortable butt! The chubby postman, gesticulating with his padded envelopes! It had once been a mill town. Wasn’t that crazy? What did that even mean?' –Victory Lap by George Saunders
