Weekend Reading 6/1

Girls: An Anthology

On Sunday the New York Times' Style section said that anthologies are hot. Hotter than memoirs. In fact, they are the new memoir. I, for one, am glad that they are hot because Global City Press has just re-issued Girls: An Anthology, which includes a short story of mine, "Red and Yellow, Black and White." (I say "a short story of mine" as if I've had so many published, but that is the only one that has seen print. Yet.) Some of the selections are familiar works by people like Grace Paley and Tillie Olsen, while others were newer pieces when the anthology was originally printed in 1997. Girls is where I first read Carolyn Ferrell, who is a wonderful writer. Do look for her collection of stories, Don't Erase Me.

Global City also publishes a literary magazine, and there's a reading to celebrate the new issue ("Simple Virtues") on Wednesday, June 14, at the Community Bookstore, in Brooklyn's Park Slope.
