In today's all-too familiar pandemonium of everyday life, free time is often a distant daydream. Reading? For many, that too seems far fetched.
The French publishing company, Short Édition, has a solution — one that offers intellectual breaks of spontaneous prose combined with passion. It's known internationally as "The Short Story Dispenser," and it's inspiring a community of readers with more than 100,000 short stories by 9,000 authors from classic literary short works, such as Shakespeare and Virginia Woolf.
"Stories elevate our lives," said Jennie Lay, adult programs coordinator for the Bud Werner Memorial Library.
