Move aside the gravy, the stuffing, bird, and the pie, and let us at the return our tradition to the Thanksgiving table this hour: the short story.

For years now The Connection has been bringing you readings of “Best American Short Stories,” performed by actors at a benefit for PEN New England at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA.

This year, we start with a story by Nell Freudenberger. It’s called “The Tutor.” It’s set in the hills and homes of Bombay, India. We’ll have a conversation with Nell Freudenberger after the reading.


Nell Freudenberger, author, her collection of short stories is “Lucky Girls.”
