“Selected Shorts,” one of the premier reading series in New York City and a popular Public Radio International program, will return to the Avram Theater at Stony Brook Southampton on Friday, July 14 to help celebrate the 10th anniversary issue of TSR: The Southampton Review.
Actors Betty Buckley, Blythe Danner, Richard Kind, and Maulik Pancholy will perform magical short stories by authors featured over the years in the literary and art journal of the Southampton MFA in Creative Writing program. It promises to be an evening of funny, moving, romantic, and surreal tales filled with unexpected twists and turns.
For the 10th anniversary issue, Editor-in-Chief Lou Ann Walker commissioned artist Matt Collins to create special images. The issue also features the winners of the Frank McCourt Memoir Prize, Suzy Vitello and Sarah Cadorette, as well as a section on #WriteOurDemocracy with a piece by Roger Rosenblatt, “Don’t Love Thy Neighbor.”
There are also works by Eve Ensler, Siri Hustvedt, Meg Wolitzer, Julia Alvarez, Kaylie Jones, Billy Collins, Michael Collier, Carl Phillips, and Hilma Wolitzer, among others.
Tickets are $30 for adults or $15 for students, and are available at www.thesouthamptonreview.com.
