|The Golden Age of Russian Stories
Russian literature flourished in the 19th Century, including poetry by Pushkin, major novels by Dostoevsky and Tolstoy, and more than 400 tales by Chekhov. Fortunately for us, nearly all the important Russian authors cultivated the art of the short story. We’ll read stories by Pushkin, Gogol, Turgenev, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Leskov, Chekhov, and Gorky.
Our text: Great Russian Short Stories, edited by Paul Negri, a Dover Thrift Edition, 2003. Paperback $5.00.

|Learn to Sail
This class is an introduction to keel boat sailing and will provide an understanding of boat handling and how it all works. We will not teach you how to be a sailor, but provide the basics so when you do get on a boat you are all set to take advantage of the opportunity. We will cover the nomenclature of the boat and boat handling, which includes points of sail, tacking and jibing. Additionally we will deal with safety, weather, sail theory, rigging, knots, rules of the road, etc.
Classes will be held on Lady Too, a San Juan 28, at Shilshole Bay Marina between 10:00 and noon. After the 3 scheduled 2-hour classes, there will be a day sail, with the date to be determined. Since classes are to be held on Lady Too, enrollment is limited to 3. Students must be able to be comfortable on a moving boat.
Note special class dates: July 2, 9, and 16
|Thoughtful Discussions for Men
Ten men and a facilitator will spend 75 minutes each week getting to know each other discussing topics in two areas each session. Topics are generated by the members. There is no writing involved—-just thinking, speaking, and listening. This is not therapy. It is a chance to spend time with other men talking about themselves and their opinions and listening to others do the same.
Class Minimum: 5 Class Limit: 10
|Plein Air Watercolor Painting
Join Cecile for outdoor classes at beautiful places around Seattle. Bring your portable supplies—-small palette (no tubes needed), a few brushes, pencil, eraser, pen and a few sheets of watercolor paper and small water container with some water. You might bring a stool to sit on. Also, a sun hat is a good idea.

The first meeting will be held at Carkeek Park — meet at the playground.
