For those that were unable to attend the New York Society Library Event last week, The New Yorker blogged about it here. A few of us from One Story were lucky enough to experience Terese Svodoba reading from the current issue of One Story, “Bomb Jockey” (Issue 130). In the sophisticated surroundings of the New York Society Library, Terese’s stately voice and graceful charm gave her story a new dimension for me. Check out the interview with her here.
John Wray, who read his fascinating illustrated story about underground New York from A Public Space, and Cathy Park Hong, who amused with her lyrical lipograms and Western ballads from Jubilat, were also spectacular. The New York Society Library deserves kudos for devoting time to young literary magazines in their revered space.
