Conversation on Stories: Rachel King and Heather Frese (in store)

Rachel King, Bratwurst Haven
It’s almost a decade after the Great Recession, and in Colorado, St. Anthony Sausage has not recovered. Neither have its employees. Over the course of these twelve interrelated stories, King gives life to diverse, complex, and authentic characters who are linked through the sausage factory and through their daily lives in a vividly rendered small town in Boulder County.

Heather Frese, The Baddest Girl on the Planet
Evie Austin, native of Hatteras Island, NC, and baddest girl on the planet, has not lived her life in a straight line.  Readers will want to jump in and advise this baddest girl on the planet—or at least just give her a shake or a hug—at every fascinating turn. The Baddest Girl on the Planet is the most recent winner of the Lee Smith Novel Prize.

For this event, each author will read a chapter/story from their books, and then discuss the differences between a novel in stories and a linked short story collection.
