Event Description

Curious about literature? Interested in lively discussion of Western classics with other like-minded people? Want to hone your English and critical thinking? Then join us for this intriguing book club. April topic: Master Story-telling: Anton Chekhov Through the stories of Anton Chekhov, we explore the writings of one of Western literature’s most influential writers. This introduction to the short story will engage your mind and gives the perfect opportunity to apply your developed English skills. Led and facilitated by Eli Walker, an American graduate of English Literature and Writing and an English teacher, you are sure to leave more knowledgeable of Western culture and more confident in your English ability. The collection of short stories used is Selected Stories by Anton Chekhov (Signet Classic edition only), available at the Wangfujing Book Store. The Wordsworth edition does not contain the stories we will cover, so pick up the Signet Classic!

Over the past five years he has taught English and writing to children, teenagers, and adults and hopes to make Western books accessible to all. When?
