 Dear all: 

I hope everyone enjoyed Chuseok! In October, we will read another short story by Hwang Sun-won, also translated by Brother Anthony. Please find the text in the link below.
Moving forward, we will select short stories for the subsequent session but plan ahead for longer narratives to give everyone plenty of time to read before we meet to discuss it. So, we will probably decide on another short story for the month of November and December but January is set for another Penguin Classics translation "The Nine Cloud Dream" by Kim Man Jung, translated by Heinz Insu Fenkl. (see attached photo). Please make sure to read this specific version, and do ask me if you need help finding a copy. But for now, details of our next month's session below.
