Event description: The Story of An Hour, by Kate Chopin was first published in Vogue on December 6, 1984. The title of Chopin's tale refers to the time that elapses between the moment when the protagonist, Louise Mallard, hears that her husband is dead and the surprise twist that changes the entire tale. Very short, perceptively direct, and completely powerful. Dr. Bill will read each short story, complete with voices and characters, leaving plenty of time for discussion following the reading.
