This book allowed me to share experiences with all the great short story writers that everyone heard about in school. They introduce us to amazing individuals who added to the cultural and social development of our country....don't miss it. They allow us to experience a different time with amazing use of their pens.

Good Luck to You All! Natalie/Athena
