Public Space Announces...

(It sounds great. I wish I could go.)
A BEA Event: Please Join Brigid Hughes and A Public Space, along with
Charles D'Ambrosio, Kelly Link, John Freeman, and Rick Simonson for a
Conversation about the Short Story

We're currently witnessing a renaissance in short story writing. But
selling short story collections (to agents, publishers, booksellers,
and eventually to customers) remains a challenge on many levels.
Please join A Public Space for a discussion about the short story
from three perspectives: the writer—Charles D’Ambrosio and Kelly Link—
the critic - John Freeman - and the bookseller - Rick Simonson. With the
help of committed editors, publishers, critics, and literary
journals, short fiction collections have the chance to become more
than just the novel's weaker sibling.

Embracing the Short Story Collection
Friday, May 19th, 2:30 - 3:30PM, Room 202B

Charles D’Ambrosio - author of The Dead Fish Museum
Kelly Link - author of Magic for Beginners
John Freeman - President of the National Book Critics Circle
Rick Simonson - Bookseller, Elliott Bay Book Company

Moderated by Brigid Hughes - Editor, A Public Space
