Great Books Roundtable Discussion

July 1 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Three Nick Adams Stories by Ernest Hemingway

This Great Books Roundtable Discussion will be held virtually on Zoom to discuss three Nick Adams short stories by Ernest Hemingway, representing three phases of the character’s life: childhood, young adult, middle age.

“The Doctor and the Doctor’s Wife” (1925), “The Killers”(1927), “Fathers and Sons”​ (1933).

No expertise or prerequisites are required. We only ask that you read the selected texts. For your convenience, links to pdfs of the texts are provided above.


If you think you will be attending the session, please send an email to Max Yela ( about your intention to attend (even if you decide not to attend later). He will accept notices of intent until 5:00p.m., May 27. Between 6:30 and 6:45 on the day of our discussion, May 27 at 7:00p.m., you will receive an email from Max with an automatic password-protected URL. Please use that URL to join the session (you will of course need to use a computer with a microphone and a video camera in it — if you want to be seen, that is). When you join, you will be placed in a waiting room that Max will be monitoring to allow attendees into the session. Only those he has emailed will be allowed into the session. This process is intended to maximize the security of our meeting.

These discussions are free and open to the public.
