Date: 3/2/2023
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 4:15 PM
 Join Librarian Barbara Wenglin for our Winter-Into-Spring 2023 series using the rich anthology, Stories of Fatherhood, ed. by Diana Secker Tesdell (Everyman's Pocket Classics, c2014). In varied settings and cultures, the collection gathers more than a century of classic short stories about having, becoming, loving and losing fathers. For this session, please read “Bicycles, Muscles, Cigarets” by Raymond Carver (1973 - p.53) in which a school-boy prank escalates with fathers behaving badly – and violently - in defense of their sons.
A copy of the book is held on reserve at the Hub/Reference Desk for reading in the Library, with circulating copies available through the catalog. Program is supported by the Friends of the Library.
