Event Description:

ANTON CHEKHOV AND HIS STORIES by Janice Moore

3 Sessions, Wednesday, September 18 – October 2, 1:10 pm – 3:10 pm

Known as a famed Russian playwright, Anton Chekhov also excelled as a writer of short fiction and is known as the "father of the modern short story."  This class will focus on his stories, which reveal that he was an authority on human nature in the same way that as a practicing physician, he knew the workings of the body.  Read his stories and see why Leo Tolstoy wrote in his journal, "I am glad that I love Chekhov."

Janice Moore enjoyed a long teaching career in the English Department at Young Harris College, serving as Chair of the Humanities Division for eight years and teaching a variety of literature classes as well as creative writing.  For a dozen years she served as poetry editor for Georgia Journal.  Her own poetry has been published in many journals, anthologies, and in her chapbook Teaching the Robins.
