Classics in Brief

Classics in Brief

These are the books you SHOULD have read… but didn’t. Or maybe you read them, but it was 20 years ago… and everything you learned 20 years ago took a backseat to figuring out your Friday night plans.

We get it. That’s why we have our Classics in Brief book club. With the help of our super-well-read-and-educated staff (a.k.a. Manager Wayne), we choose some of the great Classics of literature… all kept short.  Just because you might not have time to read War and Peace doesn’t mean you can’t read ANY Tolstoy! Join us as we work our way through a range of old and new classics that won’t monopolize your reading list!

George Willard is a young reporter on the Winesburg Eagle to whom, one by one, the inhabitants of Winesburg, Ohio, confide their hopes, their dreams, and their fears. This town of friendly but solitary people comes to life as Anderson's special talent exposes the emotional undercurrents that bind its people together. In this timeless cycle of short stories, he lays bare the life of a small town in the American Midwest.
