For this book club we will read a selection of stories by the Modernist author from New Zealand, Katherine Mansfield.  Experience coming of age stories about young women grappling with class privilege, as well as stories about grief.  This cluster of stories focuses largely on women navigating restrictive gender roles, and all of them have autobiographical elements from the eventful life of the author, which our discussion leader will elucidate.

Our guest discussion leader is Dr. Carey Snyder, a Professor in the Department of English at Ohio University.
