Short Story Discussion with Brandon Johnson

Event Description

Join us in a discussion of “The Four Lost Men,” originally published as a short story of seven thousand words in Scribner’s Magazine in 1934 and later abridged by one thousand words for republication in Wolfe’s 1935 anthology From Death to Morning.

We meet in downtown Asheville at the Thomas Wolfe Memorial State Historic Site’s visitor center. local educators lead the discussion of a pre-selected short story written by Thomas Wolfe. Just read the selected short story and be prepared for an informative and provocative conversation. Our text, from which all story selections are made, is The Complete Short Stories of Thomas Wolfe, edited by Francis E. Skipp with a Foreword by James Dickey (New York: Scribner’s, 1987).
