We will be discussing the short story 

The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas

by Ursula K. Le Guin


All are welcome to participate in this opportunity 

for reflective and thoughtful conversation. Purchase your own drinks, snacks or dinner at the event. PLEASE RSVP to Nancy or Kristy so we can have sufficient space reserved. 


“They all know it is there, all the people of Omelas,” Le Guin writes. “Some of them have come to see it; others are content merely to know it is there. They all know it has to be there. Some of them understand why, and some do not, but they all understand that their happiness, the beauty of their city, the tenderness of their friendships, the health of their children...depend wholly on this child’s abominable misery.

The short story is available on Amazon in Kindle edition for $6.49 https://www.amazon.com/Ones-Who-Walk-Away-Omelas-ebook/dp/B01N0PZ35J/ref=sr_1_1?crid=15MQGADCBSDH9&keywords=the+ones+who+walk+away+from+omelas&qid=1662931693&sprefix=ones+who+%2Caps%2C106&sr=8-1 (If you don't have an ebook reader, reach out to Kristy; the short story is also available in short story collections.)
