Jon Hassler 'Grand Opening" coverMonday Night Fiction to Discuss ‘Grand Opening’

Schreiner University professor of Spanish Pat Chastain will host a Monday Night Fiction discussion of John Hassler’s “Grand Opening” at 7 p.m., Monday, Feb. 11, in the Scarle Phillips room of Logan Library on Schreiner campus.

Hassler’s short story, “Dodgers Return,” provided the seed for this novel, a story about coming of age in a small town. The story is narrated by 12-year-old Brendan, whose parents buy a grocery store in Minnesota in the mid-1940s.

This literary event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served. The discussions will be videotaped live for later broadcast on Channel 2 Kerrville, a public service program funded in part by a grant from Humanities Texas. For more information on this or any other Schreiner University humanities event, contact Martha York at the Schreiner University Center for Innovative Learning 830-792-7352.
