Jack London Short Story Read-Aloud

Join Doc Stull for a live reading followed by a group discussion of "A Piece of Steak" a classic short story written by Jack London about an aging Australian boxer who's fallen on hard times. A powerful short story, first appearing in the Saturday Evening Post in November 1909, it took him about half a month to write and earned him five hundred dollars.

Jack London wrote hundreds of short stories culled from his own experience at sea, the challenges of the Klondike, his world travels, and from the fields and factories of California. Hearing them read out loud brings each story to life and inspires lively audience discussions.
