The World Short Story Discussion Group meets on the first Thursday of each month from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM to discuss two carefully chosen short stories. We are currently using the book, "The Best American Short Stories, 2021, edited by Jesmyn Ward," to select contemporary stories for monthly discussions.
