Reading & Book Signing
Two contemporary short story writers will be here to share their most compelling tales. Molly Antopol's The UnAmericans collects the stories that got her named one of the National Book Foundation's "5 under 35" Honorees in 2013. And Jamie Quatro's I Want to Show You More collected praise and comparisons to the great Flannery O'Connor from notoriously hard-to-please critic James Wood.
