Originally started almost a decade ago, the Jewish Short Story Group meets to discuss stories of Jewish interest. Over the years we’ve covered stories by everyone from Bernard Malamud, Amos Oz, and Edith Perlman, to newer discoveries like Etgar Keret and Rebecca Goldstein. Stories have ranged from the tragic to the comic but all are accessible and enlightening. An atmosphere of friendly repartee is encouraged, and the discussion is freewheeling and open ended.
About the Moderator: Mashey Bernstein holds a Ph.D. in American Literature and recently retired from the Writing Program and Film and Media Studies at UCSB.
Short stories are sent out two weeks in advance. If interested please send your name to email@example.com to be included on the list.
