If you’re free this Friday, come on over to the beautiful Mellow Pages Library and Reading Room for a night of new fiction curated by Paul Rome, featuring readings by Paul Rome, Emma Cline, Catherine Lacey and myself.
Readings start at 8pm. Come early for drinks and merriment. Stick around after for bonus birthday festivities.
Catherine Lacey’s debut novel, Nobody Is Ever Missing, is forthcoming from Farrar, Straus & Giroux this July. Her work has been published by McSweeney’s Quarterly, Granta, The Paris Review Daily, The Believer, The Atlantic and others.
Ann DeWitt’s writing has appeared in NOON, Guernica, BOMBlog, Esquire’s Napkin Fiction Project, The Believer Logger, art+culture, Everyday Genius, The Faster Times, elimae, and Dossier Magazine, amongst others, and is forthcoming in The American Reader edited by Ben Marcus and the anthology Short: An International Anthology edited by Alan Ziegler. Ann holds a B.A. from Brown University and an M.F.A. in Fiction from Columbia School of the Arts. She was a Founding Editor of Gigantic: A Magazine of Short Prose and Art in 2008. She currently teaches in the Undergraduate Creative Writing Program at Columbia University and in The Art and Design History and Theory department at Parsons, The New School, and is at work on her first novel.
Emma Cline’s fiction has been published in The Paris Review and Tin House. She is working on a novel about the Manson Family.
Paul Rome has written for The Huffington Post, PEN America, The Minetta Review and Mercer Street. His debut novel, We All Sleep in the Same Room, was published in November 2013, and was hailed by The Barnes & Noble Review as “a taut and stylistically vanguard legal drama” and by Electric Literature as “a New York novel… all the more memorable for its originality.”
