(The following is from the Somerville Journal, about a reading my husband will take part in, with other Somerville residents. Hope people will come! – Paula Woolley)
“Further Fenway Fiction” reading May 5, 7 pm, West Somerville Library
All are welcome to the West Branch Library at 40 College Ave. on Monday, May 5, at 7 p.m. for a reading by Somerville authors with stories in “Further Fenway Fiction: More Short Stories from Red Sox Nation.”
“Further Fenway Fiction,” edited by Adam Emerson Pachter, follows up “Fenway Fiction, which “Yankee Magazine” called “delightful.”
The time has come for a second Red Sox-inspired anthology, one that asks, “Can fiction handle victory as well as it did defeat?” The 18 stories contained in “Further Fenway Fiction” answer that question with a resounding yes, taking the reader in exciting and previously unimaginable literary directions. Within these pages, follow the World Series trophy as it visits the smallest town in Massachusetts, learn what happens when a fan bets on her beloved Sox, with marriage as the stakes, and take a satirical visit to Red Sox fantasy camp.
Authors reading include Somerville residents Mitch Evich, Sarah Green, and Jen Rapaport, as well as the book’s editor, Adam Pachter. The reading is free.
