Because this is the format for the discussion, it is important that we all have the same text. To purchase The Great Books Foundation Short Story Omnibus we’ll be using through June, 2017, go to this website: http://store.greatbooks.org/colleges-book-groups/literature-anthologies/....   Visit www.meetup.com/Manhattan-Great-Books-Discussion-Group to learn more about us.
