Selected Shorts: Riverhead Books' 25th Anniversary
About Riverhead Books Anniversary
Throughout its history, Riverhead Books has consistently published cutting-edge literary works from bold, remarkable authors. In 2018, Riverhead celebrates its 25th anniversary, and we’re pulling out all the stops! Join award-winning authors Daniel Alarcón (The King Is Always Above the People), Lesley Nneka Arimah (What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky), Lauren Groff (Florida), and James McBride (Five-Carat Soul) as they introduce readings from their recent collections and celebrate what it means to be a Riverhead author. Plus, two never-before-heard stories by R.O. Kwon (The Incendiaries) and Aja Gable (The Ensemble) written just for us! Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space and broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The Selected Shorts podcast consistently ranks as one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes. The series began in 1985 and enjoys sold-out performances to this day. Selected Shorts was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance.
