Today, Kate Chopin (1851-1904) might be best known for her groundbreaking feminist novel The Awakening(1899). But she was also an accomplished short story writer, publishing in national magazines like Atlantic Monthly and Vogue. In this episode, Jacke provides an annotated reading of producer Emma's latest pick: "A Pair of Silk Stockings" (1897) Chopin's story of a down-on-her-luck woman who receives an unexpected windfall and decides whether to succumb to the temptation of some luxury items.
