Welty at Home text graphic beside photo of two Welty books in front of Welty House

Starting Monday, December 4, we will spend several weeks reading and discussing Eudora Welty's short story collection, A Curtain of Green and Other Stories. Discussions will be led by Suzanne Marrs, professor emerita at Millsaps College and Welty's friend and biographer.

Please note that we will be referencing page numbers in the Library of America volume Eudora Welty: Stories, Essays, and Memoir; however, these works are also available in The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty.

If you received emails for previous Welty at Home book clubs, you are already registered for this free event and will begin receiving emails for this series weekly on Fridays starting Friday, November 24. Otherwise, please email info@eudoraweltyhouse.com to register and receive the emails with the Zoom links and recordings.
