On the occasion of Women's Day Protected content , let's get to know one of the few female Nobel Prize winners in literature, "the master of the contemporary short story", Alice Munro.

Quoting from an online beginner's guide, "considering which of Alice Munro’s stories to read can feel something like considering what to eat from an enormous box of chocolates" (see Protected content . Following another online guide, we selected "Runaway", one of Munro’s latter short-story collections, published in Protected content "While Runaway isn’t Munro’s very best book, it embodies so many of the strengths that it would make a fine starting point for anyone looking to launch into an exploration of her work."

Choosing a book of short stories should make it easier for you to participate in the meeting, even if you don't find the time to read the entire book. The book has been translated to numerous languages, including Portuguese ("Fugitiva").

The meeting point this time will again be Protected content , a cultural center with a café which offers a number of sweet and salty snacks. It's located close to Av. Rebouças and Oscar Freire metro station.
