Hen House at Home: The Lasting Impact of Short Stories

Jim Peterson, author of THE SADNESS OF WHIRLWINDS, and Beth Gilstrap, author of Red Hen Press Women’s Prose Award Winner DEADHEADING AND OTHER STORIES, join us for this installment of the Red Hen Press Hen House at Home series! This week, we’re focusing on short stories: the craft of writing them, the decisions and choices the authors make, and how their universal goal of leaving a lasting effect on the reader is reached through two differing collections that are unified in that quest to connect. We welcome guest moderator Fred Arroyo, who will help facilitate this conversation!
Viewable LIVE on Thursday, October 7 at 4:00pm PT at www.redhen.org/virtual, www.youtube.com/redhenpress, and www.facebook.com/redhenpress.

Hen House at Home: What Trauma Leaves Behind

Red Hen’s next installment of our Hen House at Home series features two incredible fiction writers: Lily Hoang, author of UNDERNEATH, and Jaye Viner, author of JANE OF BATTERY PARK. Both of these fictional novels have a basis in today’s reality: UNDERNEATH inspired by real life events, and JANE OF BATTERY PARK drawing inspiration from the very extremes of extremist organizations. This event will explore and highlight the trauma their characters suffer, and the choices they make because of what trauma leaves behind.

About this Event

Made in L.A. Vol. 3: Art of Transformation is a love letter to one of the greatest cities in the world, one that invites, or forces, its inhabitants to transform with it.

We launched our second anthology at Skylight Books to a crowd of devoted readers. This year, we’re coming back online to showcase a set of stories that investigate the art of transformation, something every person and every place in LA undergoes more often than not.

We’ll hear from contributing authors about how LA locales inspired their stories and what it’s like to write fiction that illuminates our beautiful, flawed, transforming home.

An online event hosted by BookSwell in collaboration with Skylight Books.
