Chesapeake Forum


EASTON — Chesapeake Forum invites the public to join a discussion about identity with Nancy Hesser, PH.D.

Whether you identify yourself by name (assumed, adoptive, hyphenated), ancestry, place of origin, or other criteria, you will want to join this group in discussing intriguing short fiction that explores ways we define ourselves and how we get defined.

The class will analyze an international selection of stories relating to such topics as “Me and My Doppelganger,” “By Any Other Name,” “Hyphenated,” and “DNA.” Readings will be provided via email. There’s room in Zoom for you, yourself, and your alter ego!

Choose between Zoom classes or recorded, three sessions, Wednesdays, Oct. 13, 20 and 27 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Cost: $30.

Hesser has taught literature in the U.S., Dominican Republic Congo and Mali. She lives with her husband and canine companions in the salt marshes of south Dorchester County. Her short story courses for various Eastern Short programs have focused on American regionalism, the Roaring ’20s, African voices, Central America, the Caribbean, foodies, drunkards and flash fiction, among other subjects.
