We will discuss Vladimir Nabokov’s essay “The Art of Literature and Commonsense,” as well as three stories: “Signs and Symbols,” also by Nabokov; “Vandals” by Alice Munro; and “The 5:48” by John Cheever.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.
Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
