Description

PEN American Center, the U.S. center of the international writers’ group, co-presents this evening of powerful short fiction about the challenges of growing up in the modern world, for characters ranging from child soldiers in Africa to suburban American teens.

Coming of Age Around the World is part of the series Selected Shorts: A Celebration of the Short Story, presentations in which spellbinding short stories by established and emerging writers are performed by stars of the stage and screen. Whether stories are presented around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author or a special collaboration with a museum or publication, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance. Hosted by Isaiah Sheffer.
