Short Attention Span Literary Club

Wednesday, April 1 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm |

If you like the idea of a book club, but are worried about the time commitment, this group is for you.  We’ll meet every couple of months and discuss short stories that have a connection to our exhibits and collections.

For our April meeting, we’ll read and discuss F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1920 classic “Bernice Bobs Her Hair.”  In this story about a young woman wrestling with the problems of popularity, Fitzgerald was examining the burgeoning youth culture that would turn the decade that followed into the “Roaring ’20s.”

You can find the story online here, or in many published anthologies of Fitzgerald’s work at your local library.

This program is free for members, and $8 for non-members.

This is a drop-in program, but we welcome RSVPs to help us better serve our visitors. Please email or call 860-236-5621 ext. 238. Questions? Contact Natalie Belanger, Adult Programs Manager, at
