Jack London Short Story Read-Aloud

To Build a Fire (1908) is Jack London's gripping short story of man vs nature, situated in the frozen Klondike. It has been translated into more languages than any other American short fiction. Join us as Paul Martin reads out loud this classic story.

Jack London wrote hundreds of short stories culled from his own experiences at sea, the rigors of the Klondike, his travels throughout the world and from the fields and factories of California. The vast quantity of his writings helped to make him the most highly paid writer of his time. Enjoy an intimate afternoon as we listen to To Build a Fire read-aloud, outdoors, under the oaks, followed by a lively discussion sharing our reactions and thoughts.
