Short Attention Span Literary Club

Thursday, October 29 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm |

Every other week, we get together to chat about short stories. Anyone can join in, no committment required! This week’s selection is “Told in the Drooling Ward” by Jack London, narrated from the perspective of a patient in a mental-health facility. You can find the story here.
