LWRC - Ursula K. Le Guin - Facebook Event Image.png

On Thursday, April 19th, we'll get a taste for Ursula K. Le Guin's expansive body of work. Our discussion will center on a handful of her poems and short stories, as we think back to our first encounters with the Scifi/Fantasy genres and determine how Le Guin's works about other worlds can help us think critically about our own. 

Our readings include:  

Poems: 

  • "In the Third Year of the War"
  • "The Maenads"

Short Stories: 

  • "She Unnames Them"
  • "The Ones Who Walked Away From Omaelas"
  • "Another Story, or a Fisherman of the Inland Sea"

Resources:

Audio recordings of the poems can be found here.
