Thank you to everyone who came out on May 16th to Roulette in Brooklyn for our annual One Story Literary Debutante Ball! We had a great night celebrating One Story Alum Kelly Link and six One Story authors who have published their debut books in the past year:
- Brad Felver, The Dogs of Detroit (U. of Pittsburgh), author of “Queen Elizabeth”
- Lydia Fitzpatrick, Lights All Night Long (Penguin Press), author of “Safety”
- Joseph Moldover, Every Moment After (HMH Books for Young Readers), author of “Every Other Emily”
- Erin Somers, Stay Up with Hugo Best (Scribner), author of “Astronauts in Love”
- Bryan Washington, Lot (Riverhead), author of “Bayou”
- Jake Wolff, The History of Living Forever (FSG), author of “The History of Living Forever”
After our debs walked down the aisle with their mentors, honoree Kelly Link gave an amazing speech full of advice for these debut writers, and everyone else. You can read it over at LitHub.
We love you all, supporters, writers & readers! Until next year….
