A modern master of the short story visits Arlington in April
The brilliant Ann Beattie speaks at Central Library on April 10 for Arlington Reads 2014, “Dazed and Confused,” a celebration of engrossing fiction for the complicated generation that came of age just after the tumultous 1960s.
Now you can win a copy of Beattie’s Arlington Reads featured title, “The New Yorker Stories,” a timeless collection of her celebrated magazine works featuring her trademark wry wit and keen, casual observations.
Use the comments space below to tell us your all-time favorite short story, the author and give us a few sentences on why that story sticks with you.
Winners will be contacted by April 4. Because of costs and logistics, winning copies of “The New Yorker Stories” will be available for pick-up only at Central Library.
Admission and parking are free for Arlington Reads events. Seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Copies of Beattie’s books will also be sold the night of her appearance, courtesy of Barnes & Noble, Clarendon.
Arlington Reads is made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the Arlington Public Library.
