Reading by fiction writer Sarah Shun-Lien Bynum

September 15th: 12:30 am - 1:30 am @ MLK Lounge

Sarah Shun-Lien Bynum, author of the Nation Book Award finalist, Madeleine is Sleeping, will read from her new collection of short stories, Likes. This event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

A review in The Washington Post stated about Likes:

“Certain authors have such mastery over the short story form that you never forget the first time you read their work. Lorrie Moore, for example. Jim Shepard. Deborah Eisenberg.

“Add to that impressive list Sarah Shun-lien Bynum with her new collection, Likes, as evidence.
Likes is a short-story collection you should read slowly, but it’s so good, each story at such a high-wire level, that you’ll wind up tearing through it and wishing for more.”
