DAVID LONG & THOM JONES in conversation with BRANGIEN DAVIS
Co-presented with GRANTA. We continue what has been nice run of evenings themed around issues of Granta, the redoubtable literary journal. Evenings with Spanish writers, and with David Guterson and Rikki Ducornet discussing 9/11 and the decade since. Tonight Seattle novelist David Long who has a story, "Bonfire," in the newest issue of Granta 118: Exit Strategies, is joined by writer Thom Jones, who penned "Easter Island Noodles Almondine" in Granta 108: Chicago. They will be hosted in conversation with Seattle Magazine's Arts and Culture Editor Brangien Davis. Exit Strategies is the latest issue of Granta, the magazine of the best new writing from around the world, explores personal and political exit stragegies with new work from Aleksander Hemon, Claire Messud, John Barth, Sophie Cabot Black, Chinelo Okparanta, Susan Minot and others. Chicago also features the work of Don Delillo, Wole Soyinka, Dinaw Mengestu, Sandra Cisneros, Bei Dao and Peter Carey to name a few. This should be, as the other nights have been, a evening of good reading and conversation. Please visit www.granta.com.
