All Levels | One of the most celebrated humorists of the 20th century, Dorothy Parker is famous for her mordant wit and cunning poetry. But her genius is also expressed in her short fiction — which has a stronger moral dimension than her other work. She was antiracist before we had that word, and the examples she set provide exciting challenges and opportunities for writers today. Get a copy of the book The Portable Dorothy Parker and bring it with you to the first meeting.
