Authors Amy Hempel (The Dog of the Marriage_), Merrill Markoe (What the Dogs Have Taught Me_) and Abigail Thomas (A Three Dog Life) introduce funny and poignant short fiction about canine companionship, inspired by the dogs in their lives. A few of the writers’ four-legged muses will even make a special appearance! The evening is a collaboration with The Bark Magazine (“The New Yorker for dog lovers” –Time), and is timed to coincide with the publication of The Bark’s second anthology, Howl: A Collection of the Best Contemporary Dog Wit. Readers are Boston Terrier owner Joan Allen, Labrador owner Patricia Kalember and Rochelle Oliver.
This event is part of the Selected Shorts: A Celebration of the Short Story series.
