First event for SHIRLEY: A NOVEL is in ten days, at John Jermain Memorial Library!
Beyond “The Lottery”
Wednesday, May 14, at 5:30 p.m.
John Jermain Memorial Library, 34 W. Water St., Sag Harbor, NY
In celebration of National Short Story Month, Susan Scarf Merrell (faculty member of the Creative Writing Program at Stony Brook/Southampton, fiction editor of The Southampton Review, and author of three books including the forthcoming Shirley: A Novel) will discuss the short stories of Shirley Jackson and the role they have played in her own understanding of the craft of writing. And, just because “The Lottery” has stayed with all of us since we first read it, we will draw lots and two winners will take home hardbound pre-publication copies of Shirley. Read it with the lights on!
Pre-registration suggested. Call 725-0049.
