The Story Behind Best American Short Stories

 Sunday, December 2, 2012 at 2:00 pm

For readers and aspiring writers across the country, Best American Short Stories has long been mandatory annual reading—but have you ever wondered what goes into the making of each year's edition?  Series editor Heidi Pitlor will share a behind-the-scenes look at the classic anthology, and authors Jennifer Haigh and Edith Pearlman will read from their contributions to this year’s edition, at the Women's National Book Association/Boston's Holiday Tea.  Eat your fill of scrumptious sandwiches and desserts, and enjoy an insider’s glimpse of the writing and publishing process.  For those whose library shelves are already full, WNBA will also be collecting gently-used books for donation to More Than Words while at the Tea.  See here for a list of acceptable genres: http://mtwyouth.org/book_donations/book_donation_guidelines/

About WNBA and the Boston chapter

Supporting the value of books and reading since 1917 

The Women’s National Book Association is a membership organization, with ten chapters nationwide, committed to promoting books, literacy, and women’s careers in publishing and allied fields. Our mission as the Boston chapter is to initiate meaningful connections among the New England book community (publishing professionals, reading groups, writers and academics, and anyone else who loves books) by providing a range of forums for interaction, including events that educate, entertain, and inspire.
