Lit Group News

For the past six years BWW Lit Group has met on Tuesday nights to analyze and discuss fiction, delving into narrative structures, character development and authorial quirks. (See list below.)

January 4th – February 1st join our lively discussion on Lucia Berlin’s “A Manual for Cleaning Women”. This short story collection is compiled in chronological order so we’ll note the changes in Berlin’s literary voice.
