Starting Monday March 29, we'll be reading and discussing Eudora Welty's collection of short stories The Bride of the Innisfallen, first published in 1955. We are grateful to Dr. Suzanne Marrs who will again be leading these discussions.
Both the Library of America volume Stories, Essays, & Memoir and The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty contain this collection. You can order either book (along with a myriad of other books by and about Welty, including Eudora Welty: A Biography by Suzanne Marrs) from the Welty House gift shop.
Below is our reading schedule. All meetings are at 12 p.m. CST.
