 Join Librarian Barbara Wenglin for our Spring Discussion Series with a selection from the anthology,100 Years of the Best American Short Stories, edited by Lorrie Moore (c2015). For this session please read "My Old Man" by Ernest Hemingway (p.36) in which a young boy follows his rootless jockey dad across Europe's tough racetrack world. We'll compare the story to the film-short version of the same title and the feature film adaptation, "Under My Skin," both on YouTube. Print copies of the series anthology are available in WP and WLS collections, also as an e-book in Hoopla and Libby/Overdrive. Please register for Zoom series here.
