Once Upon a Time…

October 4, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Patricia Schnapp, RSM, PhD

10:00 – 11:30, Mondays

October 4 – 25 (4 weeks)

The love of stories is innate. Some children demand one before they’ll go to bed – or to sleep. Whether in a church, at a lecture, or around a dinner table, whenever someone says, “That reminds me of a story,” or “Let me tell you a little story,” we all sit up and take notice. In this class, we’ll read some intriguing –possibly provocative– short stories, one each week (or two, if they’re very brief), and then have a lively discussion. In the process, we’ll review a few helpful literary terms, but not enough to destroy the magical impact a good story always makes on us, even without the campfire and roasted marshmallows!

Patricia Schnapp, PhD, is a retired professor of English, a poet, and a Sister of Mercy. Currently, she volunteers in prisons as a teacher and chaplain and at a homeless shelter. She continues to write.
