On November 11th, Hannah Tinti’s short story “Milestones” was read by performance artist Laurie Anderson for “Selected Shorts,” presented by Symphony Space here in New York. The theme of the night was “Literary Mix Tape,” or stories written based on a piece of music. Hannah’s story, based on the Miles Davis song of the same name, was read alongside “Wunderkind” by Carson McCullers. (Not too shabby, Tinti.) The podcast is available for free through PRI’s Selected Shorts.
