In biweekly sessions of Short Story Reading Club, we will read and discuss short stories by contemporary writers published in literary magazines available in the American Center in Moscow’s free eBook Library.
During these interactive and engaging online sessions, we will have public readings, animated discussions, and do creative writing exercises together to enrich our English, broaden our outlook, and have some literary fun.
For each biweekly session (before the session) you will be required to read a specific short story from a digital issue of a literary magazine, which you will be able to borrow and read for free from American Center in Moscow’s eBook Library. Borrowing books and magazines from the library requires creating a free library account; to register for one, go to this page.
REQUIRED READING for the session on May 17 at 7:00 PM MSK: "Just a Little Fever" by Sheila Heti from April 18 issue of The New Yorker. You can borrow this digital issue from the eBook Library here. Please make sure you read the story before the session on May 17.
Led by Denis Aksenov, long-running host of reading and drama workshops at the American Center in Moscow; founder of Funky Chekhov’s Society; current student at the University of Massachusetts, history & art history majors.
