The run for the Elbertas
by James Still
In language both spare and colorful, sure in its command of Appalachian dialect and poetic in its evocation of mountain settings, James Still's stories reveal the lives of his people-lives of privation and struggle, lived with honesty as well as humor. With a foreword by Cleanth Brooks and an afterword by the author, The Run for the Elbertas features thirteen stories from one of America's masters of the short story. Enjoyable and enriching, Still's stories sparkle with wisdom and joy.
Upcoming meetings for 2015:

Thursday, November 5: Nothing to Envy: ordinary lives in North Korea by Barbara Demick
