Discussion Notes: A Handful of Dates
Find this weeks story here: A Handful of Dates
Next weeks story is The Rat King by Kerry Cullen
This weeks story was about at it’s essence a coming of age story. We follow as a young man’s vision of his grandfather is changed and he develops a deeper understanding of write and wrong. Maya, Gerald and all liked the story a great deal, while Anais and Rammy came down the middle. This story reminded Maya of the history of how conquered people are treated by conquerors. It also prompted a discussion of what is moral and how morality is tied to economics.
Don’t forget to rate the story! We rated it a 4.9, for the history of our goofy system, see Anais’ post “Read Short Stories or Ray Bradbury Cries.” On a scale of 1-6 Bradberries, how do you rate A Handful of Dates?
