On February 16 the Willa Cather Book Club will meet to discuss The Stories of John Cheever. Won the Pulitzer for Fiction in 1979. Known as the “Big Red Book,” these are some of the most anthologized stories in American literature. They chronicle suburban angst and petty cruelties. Read “Goodbye, My Brother,” “The Death of Justina,” and one more story of your own choosing to discuss. Please also read Cheever’s “Montraldo” and Cather’s “Paul’s Case” so that we can compare as we make plans for Cather seminar in Pittsburgh, the setting for “Paul’s Case.”There are two meeting times available; 4:00 p.m. at Cherry Corner Estates and 6:30 at the Cather Second Home.
