Reading Thursday at Nightbird Books
From Tom Andes:
At 6:00 on October 2, I will be reading from Underground America at Nightbird Books. Underground America consists of 24 narratives of the lives of undocumented workers in America; it was edited by Peter Orner and published by McSweeney's in San Francisco. The stories in the book are based on extensive interviews conducted by Orner and by students in the MFA and MA Creative Writing programs at San Francisco State University. Many of the people in the book spoke anonymously or risked deportation to tell us their stories.
Peter read at UA and was a visiting writer two years ago during the Arkansas Festival of Writers, so I'm sure some of your students remember him. Because he edited the book along with a group of creative writing students, I thought your students might be interested in knowing about the event.
