On Friday, December 5th, One Story author and all around nice person Kirsten Sundberg Lunstrum joined us at Pianos to read from her beautiful, just-released story collection, Swimming with Strangers. Ron Carlson says: “”There is a bittersweet and real pressure at the outset of each of these stories, and we read thinking it will ease, but it will not. Kirsten Lunstrum writes well about longing and the aching distance between hearts, which at times is so close yet still unbridged. This is a terrific book of engaging fiction about real people.” (This book would make a great gift for all the readers on your list.) We were thrilled to see some new One Story subscribers at the reading and hope to see more of you in January.
