I’ve heard from a number of people lately who are using issues of One Story in their bookclubs. The members all subscribe, then meet every three to four weeks to discuss their “story of the month.” (I will now stand up at my desk and applaud these lovely folks. Huzzah! Huzzah!) But these same readers often admit they have a hard time discussing story collections. This is a terrible shame–they are missing out on so many wonderful writers! Now One Story author (and debutante) Robin Black has written a great guide for bookclubs reading short story collections. I encourage all bookclubs to take a look. And then pick up Robin’s wonderful book, If I Loved You I Would Tell You This, which includes the story Robin published with us a few years back, Issue #104, “Harriet Elliot”.
