Join One Story authors Ben Greenman and Terese Svoboda at 6:30pm on Thursday, November 12 at the Center for Fiction (17 East 47th Street between Fifth & Madison) for a conversation about “The Long Life of the Short Story.”
Ben Greenman (issue #113, “The Tremulant”) is an editor at the New Yorker and author of several books of fiction including Please Step Back, a novel about the 1960s soul/funk scene, and Correspondences, a collection of seven stories on letter-writing published by Hotel St. George Press as a limited edition, but available in paperback in 2010.
Terese Svoboda is a poet, essayist, novelist, and upcoming One Story author. Her story collection, Trailer Girl, has been described by Vanity Fair as “enthralling” and The New York Times Book Review as “a book of genuine grace and beauty.” Her short story “Bomb Jockey” will be a forthcoming issue of One Story.
We look forward to seeing you at this discussion of “the sparkling promise and enduring resilience” of the short story form.
